Remember when all of the Tri-state area’s punks and disco freaks showed up to Hell’s Kitchen in the hopes of impressing Martin Scorsese’s casting director enough to be an extra in his new HBO show about New York’s music scene from the 70s? You can get a glimpse of what they were all dressed up for this week, because the show, the imaginatively titled Rock and Roll at the moment, is filming up in Greenpoint on today and Tuesday, from 6am to 10pm.

You can catch a glimpse of Greenpoint transformed into the 70s through movie magic on the east side of Manhattan Avenue between Dupont and Green Streets and the west side of Manhattan Avenue between Kent and Java Street. Exciting stuff, unless you live there we suppose.
