The Brooklyn Heights Association put out a notice about Showtime's HOMELAND television show's plans for a huge gun battle, exploding SUVs, soldiers and presidential motorcade on Sunday, February 19, in the heart of Brooklyn Heights. This is just a TV show! But if you did not know it was happening, this is really not what the neighborhood needs. A bloody terrorist attack in the middle of Presidents weekend? Please let as many people know that this is taking place and IS NOT REAL!

The full statement reads:

"For avid viewers of the show, this may be a spoiler, but the scenes will include explosions, smoke, the firing of weapons, and large numbers of uniformed police, military officers, and protesters. There will also be snipers on the roof.

The scene with the explosion wil involve a convoy driving east on Schermerhorn Street counter to normal trafic flow. An exploded and burning SUV will be used in the shot. An explosion with smoke and debris will occur as the presidential motorcade exits a garage.

The City’s permit allows the production company to park on blocks throughout the area: Schermerhorn between Court and Boerum Place; Boerum Place between State and Fulton; State Street between Court and Boerum Place; Court between Livingston and State; Livingston between Court and Boerum Place; and Cadman Plaza West between Tillary and Middagh."

Sounds like a great Presidents Day weekend in Brooklyn.
