Comingsoon.net is headed up east to determine which New York-set movies are the very best. Check out our picks in the gallery below!
Ah, New York. New York City. The Big Apple. The city that never sleeps. The background for countless dramas, comedies, action films, and every other genre imaginable. Plenty of directors who shoot in the city try to claim that it’s just as much a character in their films as the lead actors are, which makes NYC the greatest performer in the history of the medium.
Movies set in New York are undeniably in a league of their own. Several decades ago, the city was incredibly dangerous. Now, the city is viewed as a place where love happens. It’s a baffling turn, but the movie industry’s responsible for these images and the drastic change that happened sometime in the late 80s and early 90s. No matter if it’s being portrayed as a hell or a utopia, New York movies are simply unbeatable.
