I love New York. I love New York's native son, Billy Joel (I also swear to God it says that on his 2015 MSG posters). I love songs about New York. And I love movies set in and/or about New York.
"New York, New York. It's a wonderful town, the Bronx is up and the Battery's down"
I tried to put movies where the setting of New York was essential, events couldn't have just happened anywhere. It's important that they were set here.
