Hollywood has some pull, at least with the Village of Mineola.
A village road that had crumbled with holes and broken pavement was repaved by village workers just in time for the shooting of a movie.
Hudson Street, between East Second Street and Liberty Avenue, had been a disaster of a street, complete with craters and broken pavement and was ignored for months. However, when a production company decided to shoot a scene from a movie at Kiss the Chef, the diner on Hudson Street, they got to unload equipment from a newly paved street as village workers paved the street just in time for the movie shoot.
Village of Mineola workers began paving Hudson Street on Monday June 1, just two days before the production company arrived to shoot the scene on June 3.
Village officials say that the street was scheduled to be repaved for a month but the weather didn’t cooperate.
For those residents who find their street in need of repair, you may have to take out your movie camera.
