Film

Midwood has long played a part in both film and television production. The film industry established itself in the neighborhood in 1907, when the Vitagraph company occupied a studio at Avenue M and East 14th Street. Scenes from films like "Hey Pop" and "Buzzin’ Around," starring Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle, were filmed on streets in Midwood.[7] Warner Bros. purchased the studio in the 1920s, using it for short subjects, and moved the studio operation to Hollywood in 1939. The building is now home to the Shulamith Yeshiva School for Girls[8], but a large smokestack bearing the name Vitagraph is still on the property, visible from the BMT Subway line, as are two brick walls from the original studio.

Many of the noted variety shows (with the exception of Mitch Miller) had a live studio audience for both rehearsals and the actual show recording. NBC Guest Relations staff could be found at times standing on the street outside the studio trying to give away tickets. Only exception to that was the brief Saturday Night Live stint at the studio, plus "Big Named" Guest or Host tapeing's as well (e.g., Rolling Stones, Desi Arnaz). NBC Guest Relations ran a charter bus to and from their Rockefeller Center HQ to the Brooklyn studio for ticketed audience members, so that they did not have to travel by car or subway. Fans in-the-know could always be found outside the studio entrance waiting to greet their favorite celebrity, whom in term were happy to stop and chat, sign an autograph, pose for a photo, all without the hassle of present day out-of-control paparazzi. From the 1950's through The First Cosby Show years, the NBC studios presence in Midwood basically transformed Avenue M into Brooklyn's version of Hollywood Boulevard's 'walk of fame. Especially considering the number of Top Name Celebrities that had been at the studios at one time or another, and "had walked upon the local street's". That includes everyone from Jerry Lewis, to Lucille Ball and her ex-Desi Arnaz, Sammy Davis, Jr., Frank Sinatra, his daughter Tina Sinatra, Michael Landon, Comedian Bill Dana, Alan King, Larry Storch, Sonny and Cher, actress/director Lee Grant, Lena Horne, Leslie Uggams, Dionne Warwick, her sister Dee Dee Warwick, Tommy Tune, Buck Owens, Steve Lawrence, The Rolling Stones, Baseball greats Tom Seaver and Roy Campanella, and so many more. Unlike Hollywood's walk of fame there are No footprints or Gold Stars placed in the concrete (along the Avenue, or outside the studios building) honoring them. But fond memories of their just being there still exist. A few old classic Episodes of Perry Como, Hullabaloo, and Kraft Music Hall (taped at the studio) can be found on VHS and DVD, as well as on You Tube.

Midwood, Brooklyn - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (658 words)
Midwood is a neighborhood located in the south central part of the Borough of Brooklyn, New York, USA, roughly halfway between Prospect Park and Coney Island.
It is bounded on the north by Avenue I and the Brooklyn College campus of the City University of New York and on the south by Kings Highway.
The name Midwood derives from the Dutch word Midwout (middle woods), the name the settlers of New Netherland gave the area of western Long Island, between the towns of “Boswijck” and "Brueckelen", because of its thick forests.
