Netflix issues Winter Weather Advisory for Tompkins Square Park



Crews for the new Netflix series "Dash & Lily" are setting up for a shoot in Tompkins Square Park this morning... and adding to the dusting of snow that is expected today.

EVG reader Mark Cyr shares these photos, as crew members are rolling out their own snow, deploying Styrofoam snowmen and sprinkling fake snow on the real snow...







"Dash & Lily," an eight-episode holiday romantic comedy series set for Netflix in 2020, has been filming around the neighborhood in recent weeks. The show is based on the young-adult book series "Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares" from authors Rachel Cohn and David Levithan.

You can read this article for more background on the series, which stars Austin Abrams and Midori Francis.

So is the park closed to residents so the corporate can produce their fictions?

A local gaffer said...

Park is not closed AND there are at least 5 local residents employed on the production. Much of our money will be put into the East Village economy. So win,win. Thanks everyone from one local film worker.

Win-win — except for anyone in the neighborhood trying to take their dog to the dog park, only to be barked at to fuck off by the faceless production staff of this trashcan tween romcom...

A local gaffer said...

In fairness, no one used the words “fuck off” and, you should be happy to know that a large donation was made to the fund for the dog run’s maintenance, to the long run benefit of all local dog owners. Thanks for your patience.

Local gaffer, thanks for your calm and graciousness in the face of some incredible assholes. Jesus.
