We know that New York City is the setting for so many movies because of its romance, intrigue, danger, and beautiful old architecture. But knowing that and being able to actually track down the specific spots of famous movie moments are two very different things. That’s why we were delighted to discover the Tumblr FILMography: TV writer Christopher Moloney maps out movies set in the Big Apple, from beloved rom-coms like Maid in Manhattan to sexy thrillers like Cruel Intentions to summer 2012′s superhero movies The Dark Knight Rises and The Avengers. Then he tracks down the specific location and lines it up to his printed-out photo. I’m not sure if he goes for the black-and-white pics for an aesthetic or because of his printer’s limitations, but the end result is quite stylish.
Now, our gallery is just of the mainstream movies that caught our eye, like the ones mentioned above. But the Tumblr also has plenty of genre films and old classics, so make sure you check it out!
