It would seem that there was quite a bit of helicopter activity along the Columbia Waterfront area in the last few days.
Reader Fred contacted me and asked me if I knew what it was all about. He writes:
I live down on Sackett and Columbia. The neighbors and I have been noticing the increased helicopter traffic the last few days. To me it looks like they are going by twos, from Red Hook, then over the Manhattan Bridge and then bearing east, and then repeating it....making a movie perhaps? These are not NYPD copters.
Do you have any info on this?
Unfortunately, I couldn't help him, but told him that I would put the question out there in case someone else knows more.
So how about it, dear Readers? Why were there pairs of helicopters flying back and forth along the Columbia Waterfront?
