BROOKLYN -

Actor and producer Will DeMeo has worked with stars like John Travolta and Robert De Niro, but has also been involved in projects to celebrate Brooklyn's culture and history.

DeMeo is best known for his role in "The Sopranos." He is now working hard on three separate projects, all of which revolve around Brooklyn.

Last year, he unveiled his clothing line Brooklyn Brand, which is distributed online and in dozens of stores.

Now, he is working a documentary titled "Crusin' Down 86th Street."

"There's so much history to 86th Street ... how people used to cruise in their cars down 86th street, it was a really unique and really great time," says DeMeo.

He is also putting together a series title "Gravesend," of which several episodes have already been shot. DeMeo describes it as a 1980s mob drama.
