On Location in New York City

After living in New York for a few months I have really started to notice how many movies are shot on location here.  I was always able to recognise the most famous buildings and landmarks when watching films based in New York, but now I can often tell exactly where they have been filming and in which neighbourhood. 

On a recent trip back to the UK all of the films I ended up watching were shot on location in New York. 'The Switch', 'Going the Distance' and 'Morning Glory' are all based here and it made me feel like a local when I recognised locations and landmarks. 

When walking around the city you can often spot TV shows and movies being filmed.  I stepped outside my building today and the street was full of film crew trucks and vans and although I haven't seen any filming yet, I am keeping an eye out.  I have seen a TV show being filmed at Columbus Circle, but unfortunately I didn't see any big screen names in action. 

You never know when you might stumble across live filming in New York, so keep your eyes peeled just in case!
