Greenpointers may see and hear an explosion tonight by the waterfront as part of a media production, police say.
A simulated explosion and fireball effect will occur between 5:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. on West Street between Milton Street and Noble Street, according to the NYPD and NYC Emergency Management.
The stunt will occur only once between the the three-and-a-half hour period, and could possible be seen from Manhattan. Police and firefighters will be on site.
The 94th Precinct said the film crew typically notifies the precinct a couple of hours ahead of the explosion occuring.
Sources say the filming is part of a a television show.
