Communities: 7th Street, between C and D

Speaking of communities. There was a really good independent film made recently by Josh Pais, who grew up on 7th Street. He's primarily an actor and you would recognize him from many commercials. There are not as many interior shots as exteriors, but there is a possibility for its use for "home." Josh is a pretty friendly guy and might be approachable for a primary talk on the neighborhood and home-then and now. I think Israel may have grown up on a block nearby. This is a clip from 7th Street featuring a crusty old "veteran" named Manny who has since passed away.

Was the actor in question forced to go to Private school outside of the neighborhood in his teenage years and later starred in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?
If so, I believe that I've seen this documentary last year; it was really good.
