The Best 25 Films Set in New York According to Yardbarker

It's a joke at this point to call New York a character in a movie. That's because many in the past would sincerely assert that New York City was, in fact, a character in their film or TV show. Having said that, there have indeed been a ton of movies that take place in the five boroughs and sometimes New York does, in fact, feel like something akin to a character in the film. Wherever they take place in America's most populous city, these are the 25 films set in New York City Yardbarker thinks are the best.
