New York City Movie Map

Since there has been cinema, there has been New York cinema. From 1908’s The Thieving Hand all the way through this year’s The Great Gatsby, tens of thousands of films have been set – if not always shot – in the city that never sleeps.

Visualising even a small fraction of these movies would of course be tricky, but aLp’s Bernie Hou did his very best, producing the awesome New York City movie map you can see below. Overall there are 91 films represented, crammed in some way onto the island of Manhattan, exactly where the scenes took place. You can take a quiz on the answers here, it goes without saying that some are easier to identify than others.
