The new FX show “The Americans” has been filming throughout the borough– and even hit 8th Avenue last month– but tomorrow it gets a little more exciting. The NYPD has alerted the public that on Wednesday, February 13th between 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m., the production will set off a “controlled explosion with a fireball effect” on Union Street between Hicks and Columbia Streets.
Depending on how huge this explosion actually is, there’s a chance we’ll be able to see its effects. (We are on a slope, after all.) So, you know, don’t panic if you see a fiery blaze in the distance. It’s controlled! But still probably really cool! So cool, in fact, that it might be worth a trip to the waterfont. Let us know if you catch it.
