Location Scout Quoted: Brooklyn Paper: City yells “Cut!” on filming in South Williamsburg

“…A lot of people tend to be a little bit over territorial, but what they don’t realize is that if they can deal with just a little bit of trouble, it will do their neighborhood and the city a whole lot of good,” said location scout Richard Hobbs, who claims that film crews can be a boon for local businesses.

“There are always going to be sensitive areas in the city, but the good thing is that this a big city”, Hobbs added.

“If Williamsburg is on the hot list right now, you go somewhere else.”
