New York — New York's entertainment industry moved closer to full throttle Monday, as a new week and largely restored downtown power meant something of a return to normalcy for the city's upended cultural landscape.
While Broadway theaters and midtown TV studios were back in business within about two days of Superstorm Sandy, much of downtown New York – its off-Broadway theaters, independent movie theaters, Lower East Side concert halls and Chelsea galleries – only got power back late Saturday.
For the first time, the Office of Film Theatre and Broadcasting began issuing permits on a case-by-case basis for film shoots in exterior locations, meaning the city streets would again be providing background for the two dozen TV series shooting in New York and the dozen-plus movies in production. Permits for location shooting in the city's Zone A – including Staten Island and parts of Brooklyn – were still not being issued.
