A block of 36th Street between 34th and 35th Avenues in Astoria is being turned into the city's first and only outdoor film set. The 34,800 square-foot project is thanks to a deal between Kaufman Astoria Studios and the Economic Development Corporation. The studio has been credited with drawing a number of creative groups to the neighborhood, most notable the Museum of the Moving Image. Neighbors are annoyed at the loss of parking, but they're glad to see more creative industry in the area. [DNAinfo]
