Hollywood in Chelsea

From Dave Brigham:

This is part two of a series about Chelsea, Massachusetts. The first part, "Chelsea Stroll," was published September 4, 2013.

Thanks to tax breaks offered by the state, Massachusetts has become a movie-making hot spot. Films made here at least in part in recent years include "R.I.P.D.," "Ted," "Grown Ups 2" and "The Equalizer."

"The Equalizer," which is based on the '80s TV series of the same name, stars Denzel Washington and Chloe Grace Moretz. It's been filming recently in Chelsea, a small, blue collar city just north of Boston. The movie makers weren't filming on the day I swung through the city to take pictures, but I saw evidence of their craft.

Bad camouflage

Not sure if somebody was trying to hide this box. If so, they didn't do a very good job.

Power up

Boxes and wires likes these were all over the place around the neighborhood between the Tobin Bridge (which hulks over the city) and the square where the police station is. There were also random light riggings and trucks tucked away here and there. Wish I'd been there to see some filming, but the city was pretty cool to walk around in just the same.
