☞ SEE: Hollywood on One Harlem Block

An article in the Daily News this weekend reveals that one particular block adjacent to the Mount Morris Park Historic District is apparently very popular with location scouts for television shows.  A designer who lives in a brownstone located between Lenox and ACP/7th Avenue has leased his building for filming "Law and Order," "The Good Wife" and even the Obama Campaign of 2008 at $5,000-$6,000 for each project. This part of the neighborhood is evidently so in demand that the block association had to form a film committee to insure that that all goes smoothly with those living in the area.  Sometimes things get a little too realistic and the aforementioned designer arrived home at one point to find that a fire scene was being filmed on site with smoke and flames "pouring out of the windows."
