Thursday, May 2 marks day three of filming downtown for the "Amazing Spider-Man 2" movie.
Plenty of people continue to crowd streets and windows surrounding the set to take pictures or videos.
At the same time, some businesses say they're taking a hit from the filming.
The owner of a deli says he's losing about $1,000 a day because most of his regulars can't get to his restaurant.
