Film Students Terrify Upper West Side With ‘No Parking’ Signs

07.26.11 Marina Galperina

Car-owning (ooh la la!) residents of West 85th Street got very panicked recently when “Film Shoot” signs appeared on their block in the morning, telling them there’s “No Parking” by noon. Locals say “It feels like harassment.” The film crew says they need to read the signs more clearly because they weren’t threatening to tow their cars.

The team cites their low budget and the 24 hour warning needed before they could authorize towing. Unless you’re Tom Hanks.
