Fantasy and Reality

The problem with having a movie being made in our city, aside from having to deal occasionally with parking spaces being condoned off, access to shops blocked, and traffic diverted, is that the illusion being created for the film can sometimes be mistaken for reality. Yesterday, it was the transformation of what used to be Lisa Marie Beauty Salon into a funky video store, worthy of Hudson twenty or more years ago.

Today, it was the collapse of a building at 406 Warren Street.

Realistic as the scene above appears, it's all only make-believe. The building that stood at 406 Warren, and probably had since the latter part of the 18th century, was demolished in 2006.
