Universal Studios unveils rebuilt N.Y. Street backlot | THR
As Universal Studios unveiled its rebuilt New York Street backlot Thursday, testimonials were offered to the firefighters who extinguished the 2008 inferno that razed the place and to the location’s role in lighting up the local economy.
"This is great for job creation," California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said. "It’s about jobs, jobs, jobs."
Schwarzenegger stood on a stage on a corner of New York Street along with Steven Spielberg, Universal Studios president Ron Meyer, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and other city and studio officials as they unveiled the 13-city-block area that was rebuilt for $200 million.
