Great map of the NY cinematic landscape.

New York is one of those cities that becomes a character in any of the films it's in, especially from the 1970s on, and in that sense, just having a street name or locality in the title gives the viewer a perspective before he or she even sees the film. It's not something I ever considered until I saw all these names together like this. Great stuff.
