Movies to get us in the mood?
Save

We’re heading to NYC for a few days in December, and I’m hoping to show a few movies to the kids to get them excited. It’s not our first visit, but it’s been a while...

We’re staying in the Lower East Side, but really anything that captures NYC will do. Suggestions?

- Desperately Seeking Susan

- When Harry Met Sally

- The Visitor

I’ve been watching lots of actual footage of NYC on YouTube- there’s some excellent stuff on there - real life

In fact on Facebook I’ve just been watching a great video showing the tree at the Rockefeller centre- it looks fantastic

With kids:

Ghostbusters

Without kids:

Billions series with Damien Lewis (in a grand American accent, no less!)

The Devil Wears Prada

Rear Window

West Side Story

Saturday Night Fever

For these, remember it's these are very dated and the City is VERY different now -- no kids, depending upon age:

Taxi Driver

Serpico

The Taking of Pelham 1, 2, 3 (NOT the horrible remake -- the original is better!)

The French Connection
