Films about New York

What is your favorite New York City film? This week, Time Out New York presents the top 100 — a list of their picks for the movies that capture this city at its best. I loved the vintage-looking magazine covers, especially the one featuring Woody Allen's Manhattan

This story inspired me to think about my own top picks. I narrowed it down to five (100 would take too long!) — When Harry Met Sally, Annie Hall, West Side Story, Rear Window, and Saturday Night Fever.

Now, you go. What is your favorite film about New York?

  1. All fabulous pics! Aside from any Woody Allen movie, I love "Desperately Seeking Susan," too. A classic 80s NY piece! Oh, and "Party Girl" with Parker Posey!

  2. Party Girl is a classic. My favorites are Do The Right Thing and King Kong.

  3. I haven't seen "Party Girl." I now need to add it to my Netflix queue! I just thought of another NYC film I love — "200 Cigarettes". Has anyone seen that one? Christina Ricci is amazing in it.
