Remaking of “Pelham 123” spreads to Brooklyn

The Taking of Pelham 123 Dumbo Brooklyn

Last week I wrote about how film crews were shooting the remake of “The Taking of Pelham 123” along Park Avenue above Grand Central.

Yesterday I spotted signs in Dumbo (around the intersection of Jay and Front streets) noting a “Pelham 123” shoot taking place on Tuesday. What the heck are they doing in Brooklyn?

I also hear they were shooting scenes around 41st and 42nd streets on the East Side in Manhattan. More: The AM New York Urbanite blog has details about shooting on the 7 platform at Grand Central (they got permits for that?!) and Second Ave. Sagas has pics of Denzel Washington at the Park Ave shoot.
