Well then. A pleasant Thanksgiving to you too!
So we asked RyanAvenueA for a little background on this incident last night. Ryan and his wife were having dinner at an Avenue A restaurant. There were cones blocking the west side of Avenue A along (from Fourth Street on down) to restrict parking. There weren't any signs indicating what this was for, but all the cones were labeled "MC," Ryan said. A van was parked there, with an extension cord coming out of the rear passenger door that plugged into the panel at the base of a lamp post.
A little later, Ryan's wife goes outside for a cigarette. She asked crew members what they were doing, and they said they were "securing the location" for "A Gifted Man." To which she asked why they needed all the parking now. She said they should have permits up if they want to block the parking. They told her to get lost.
"As we walk out to go home, she slipped a little on the wet pavement, and the bigger buy (there's a few of them) goes, 'I hope you fall on your fucking head you stupid bitch.' I turn around and ask him what the fuck that was for, and he says I should ask my wife. He starts walking away and I ask him directly if they are there filming the CBS show 'A Gifted Man.' He just stares at me, and I repeat my question. He finally says yes and walks away."
As of this morning, the crews weren't set up yet for filming, though someone had posted permits.
