Travel to New York through the cinema
Upon stepping foot in the Big Apple for the first time, there is a feeling shared by all that is that of having been there before. Although nothing compares to seeing it with our own eyes, thanks to the film industry, we can feel the sensation of knowing its corners, of having seen Times Square, the Statue of Liberty or its iconic buildings.
The truth is that New York is one of the most photographed cities in the cinema. Its neighborhoods, its large avenues, its parks and its buildings are the best outdoor set. For this reason, together with Los Angeles, 4,500 kilometers away, it is in second place when it comes to choosing the perfect setting and it could be said that every corner of the city refers to a film title.
Some important directors who have done almost all their work in New York are Woody Allen, Martin Scorsese and Spike Lee. Currently, due to the reduction in taxes for filming in the Big Apple, the number of movies shot on the streets of New York is increasing considerably.
