Greenpoint has recently been seen as a neighborhood where investors can get more bang for their buck. But a more literal bang will reportedly shake the trendy locale this evening. The HBO hit show “Boardwalk Empire” will use fireball effects tonight while filming on private property in the Greenpoint area from 10 p.m., according to Gothamist.

A controlled explosion, supervised by the New York police and fire departments, will likely be heard in surrounding neighborhoods and even in Manhattan.

FDNY Press secretary Frank Dwyer told the Gothamist: “FDNY Explosives Unit issued a permit and will be onsite to monitor the loading, firing and aftermath of the controlled explosion. There will be an ambulance onsite as well as a fire apparatus for fire protection. All work is being done by pyrotechnicians licensed by the FDNY.”[Gothamist]Katherine Clarke
