Following a meeting with community leaders at the offices of United Jewish Organizations of Williamsburg, Council Member Stephen Levin commends Columbia Pictures and the “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” production crew for accommodating the needs of the Jewish community to celebrate the Passover holiday. The film production will now load in their equipment into the Marcy Avenue Armory on Friday, March 22nd after sundown and will reduce the amount of parking they need to just half of a block adjacent to the Armory during Passover. Additionally, trailers and large trucks will be housed in a parking lot, not on the street, for the duration of the filming.
Levin said, “We expressed the importance for Spider-Man to pass-over filming during Passover and they have answered our call. Reducing the amount of parking the production uses will avoid the parking struggle that had been anticipated and will allow everyone celebrating the opportunity to safely enjoy the holiday with friends and family.”
“I want to thank Columbia Pictures, Spider-Man, and the Mayor’s Office of Film, Theater and Broadcasting for working together with my office, Community Board 1, and local leaders and considering the needs of my constituents. Thank you for letting my people park.”
