It's bad enough that our crumbling buildings have left many citizens homeless
, but now, dammit, they're inconveniencing celebrities. Yesterday a downtown Manhattan shoot for Remember Me
, starring Robert Pattinson, was delayed when a crack in a nearby building wall set off alarms and summoned firefighters
. This led to "chaos" as five fire trucks pulled up and NYFD personnel inspected the damage. Pattinson, who had been hit by a cab
and stalked by gossip reporters
earlier in his New York adventure, is said to have handled it like a trouper and spent the delay "concentrating on his scene," reports contactmusic. His dedication to craft is an inspiration to us all.
Update: The affected buildings are identified as 273 and 275 Mott Street. 273 Mott was evacuated of its 15 residents and restaurant, who were allowed back in that night.
