Caprice police movie car brings food to New York-area hospital workers
New York City and the surrounding area is a major epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic, and hospital workers there have been working overtime to handle the surplus of patients. At the same time, a lot of people aren’t working. Waiters, hotel staff, and, of course, the actors, extras, production staff and service workers that support New York’s prodigious film and television industry have been twiddling their thumbs since film locations shut down in the middle of March.
Paul Brozen owns New York Picture Cars, a small company that supplies vintage cars to productions like Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and HBO’s 1970s drugs and porn drama, The Deuce. He hasn’t been working amid the public health crisis-induced hiatus, but the downtime got him thinking about what he could do to help the people who were putting it all on the line to save lives.
