On Becoming a Tabloid Figure and a SelloutManhattan Plaza, Me, Movies, Screenwriting
So, yes, it’s true: I’m a tabloid figure and a sellout.
And it’s all pretty cool, actually.
Miracle on 42nd Street, the documentary feature I co-wrote with Steve Ryfle, got New York Post coverage, and sold out its Saturday premiere at Doc NYC in Manhattan.
How the Documentary I Worked on Spent Its Summer Vacationdocumentary, Manhattan Plaza, Miracle on 42nd Street, Movies, Screenwriting
What a busy summer it was for Miracle on 42nd Street.
The documentary was completed. The official Website was relaunched. The teaser poster was rolled out.
Miracle, which I co-wrote, is about Manhattan Plaza, the affordable-housing community for artists in New York City. The complex was born of the Big Apple’s mid-1970s financial crisis, and opened during the Bronx Is Burning summer of 1977. So, yes, there’s a lot of cool footage in Miracle — and a lot of cool stories from the likes of Larry David (an early Manhattan Plaza resident) and Samuel L. Jackson (a Manhattan Plaza security guard during the ’77 blackout).
