Scenes from Taxi: Brooklyn South were being filmed in Fort Greene, Brooklyn over several days last week and into this week. (More photos after the jump.)
Many residents in Fort Greene have been inconvenienced by the frequent filmmaking in the neighborhood (which brings in a tremendous amount of revenue to New York City) and were not shy about voicing their concerns in community centers and in an anonymous letter to the production team. They seem to have heard and put forth the olive branch before the frustration escalated. Their response seems genuine, at least on the surface.
Craft services were available and being assembled during rush hour. It was a curious sight for the schoolchildren going to and fro.
