115. I've never seen it ...
... and had no idea it was filmed here!

Back in the '90s, the HBO film about John Gotti (w/ Armand Assante) was shot in our neighbourhood. When we saw it, we could hardly concentrate on the movie, because we were so busy saying, "Hey, that's Seb's Cappuccino place, or, "Hey, there's OUR house!"

We have a women's shelter in the hood, and when the film crew left, they put flyers in everyone's mailbox saying that in appreciation for everyone being so cooperative while being inconvenienced (streets blocked during filming, etc.), they had made a very substantial donation to the shelter - which we all thought was a really nice gesture.
