The "No, we don't really have a Micky D's!" Moment
Residents poured out torrents of Facebook posts and tweets when a McDonald's canopy sprouted on Church Street, known for summer sidewalk cafe dining, night time "walk-in" movies and musical entertainment. Turned out it was one of those things Montclair does best, a commercial film shoot. (12 miles from Manhattan, the town is a favorite for NYC production companies). Two days later, the faux McD's was gone, and the funky hippie clothes, lucky Chinese kitties and beads were all back.
