Due to the efforts of Community Board 8 relaying numerous community complaints regarding excessive filming in Prospect Heights, the Mayor's Office of Film, Theater, and Broadcasting has agreed to impose a moratorium on filming in Prospect Heights for the next six months. The moratorium will be effective beginning February 1, 2015, but will not include projects that are already contracted.
The moratorium will be in effect from Flatbush to Washington Avenue between Dean Street and Sterling Place.
The FX Network series The Americans is under contract for a recurring location that will continued to be honored. Their primary filming location is Carlton Avenue. The Mayor's Office of Film, Theater, and Broadcasting has agreed to limit the show's parking in the affected area to help ease the burden to residents.
