yfilm7 At The Corner of 3rd and 3rd
Directed by Max Kutner
Documentary, color, 2012, 20:43 minutes

Explores the evolving character of Gowanus, Brooklyn and the mysterious New York and Long Island Coignet Stone Company Building that captivates all who pass it. Constructed in 1873, the building at 3rd Avenue and 3rd Street is a historic landmark, but has been mostly abandoned since the 1960s. The Coignet Building got back in the news when Whole Foods broke ground on its first Brooklyn market just a few feet away from the landmark. Through archival materials and interviews with historians, activists, artists, photographers, and local residents, the 20-minute film presents the first comprehensive account of the past, present, and future of the Coignet Building and how a community looks to the future while fighting to preserve the past.

In 1890, Antonio "Sunny" Balzano's family moved from Italy to what is now known as Red Hook, Brooklyn."Sunny's Bar" (and the adjacent original family's home on Conover Street) survived numerous and profound, social, economic and demographic changes during the 79 years of Sunny's life. None of these transitions and challenges however, pales in comparison to the devastation and destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy that left both Sunny and his wife, Tone (pronounced "too-nah") wondering if their iconic and treasured gathering place would ever, could ever, be open again.

In Brooklyn, the neighborhood 'killer tag' game enters its last day. Seven competitors remain in the contest, when only one can triumph. Will it be Natalie? Bob? Ralf? Mark? Sandy? Rodney? Lerman? Each one has a name of the other and it's up to their guile and ability to outrun or out-think the others. This fast-moving short shows a Brooklyn neighborhood in a whole new light.
