Yesterday signs went up in our street to say that people couldn't park during certain hours because I movie was being filmed. John checked it out all day, but nothing had happened before it was time for us to go to the museum.
When we got home, we found sections of our street blocked off and a film crew setting up. Because it was getting dark, they set up lights on our fire escape. We chatted with the guy out the window to find out what was going on. He told us that they were shooting a movie with the guy from "Harold and Kumar go to White Castle" (John Cho) They had people with fake blood and everything! We tried to watch a bit, but we didn't end up seeing much until much later in the night. (John saw when he walked Colby for his 'before bed pee'.) We were surprised to see there is actually a NYPD unit designated as the Movie TV unit! John wondered what they do and when we walked by, saw that they just sit in the car.
We actually went out to the cinema to watch a new movie called "Invincible" all about a guy who played football for the Philadelphia Eagles. We shared a large popcorn with lots of extra butter! It was a great atmosphere in the cinema. People seemed to forget where they were and were actually clapping and cheering the good football plays in the movie. If that's what they're like for their movies, I can't wait to go to a real football game.
On the walk home we decided to have a Philly Cheesesteak (originally from Philadelphia). It was great! And a fun end to the outing. It's shredded steak served with your choice of cheese and onions in a bread roll (a little like a hotdog bun).
Anyway, here are some photos from the movie shooting in our street.

Hi Penny,
Great Blog!!
I went right back to the beginning and followed everything. I had so many questions but now I've read all the answers in your stories.
So, you sold the house, car everything and picked up and moved!!
I know what that's like, but right now I'm feeling like I jsut want to go back again.
Anyway, what's your new class like? How many kids? what age? Amazing that you took Colby, any quarantine issues?
Miss you,
take care
Love Em
