25 Best Movies Set in New York City
"New York City has long been the film industry's favorite city. Los Angeles beats the Big Apple by the sheer number of movies shot on location, but it's no secret the filmmakers have a longstanding love affair with New York. Its elements—from buildings and bridges to yellow cabs and subways—function as supporting characters in film, whether the Empire State Building in "King Kong" or the Checker Cab in "Taxi Driver." On a grander scale, the city itself enjoys a leading role in dozens of fan favorites from "The Godfather" to Sleepless in Seattle."
