Times Square. Times Square is a major commercial intersection and a neighborhood in Midtown Manhattan. Located at the junction of Broadway and Seventh Avenue and stretches from West 42nd to West 47th Streets, Times Square has been heralded as “The Crossroads of the World,” “The Center of the Universe,” and the “The Great White Way.” This brightly illuminated hub of the Broadway Theatre District is one of the world’s busiest pedestrian intersections, and a major center of the world’s entertainment industry. Countless movies and TV shows have used Times Square as the backdrop for their scenes.
Tiffany & Co. Store. Since 1940, Tiffany’s flagship store has been located at the corner of Fifth Avenue and East 57th Street in Manhattan. The polished granite exterior is well known for its window displays, and the store has been the location for a number of films, including Breakfast at Tiffany’s starring Audrey Hepburn, and Sweet Home Alabama, starring Reese Witherspoon.
Grand Central Terminal. Although the terminal has been properly called “Grand Central Terminal” since 1913, many people continue to refer to it as “Grand Central Station,” the name of the previous rail station on the same site. The enduring appeal of the station is thought to be related to its monumental spaces and meticulously crafted detail. Movies filmed here include: “Carlito’s Way,” “Superman,” “Duplicity,” and “Men in Black.”
The Met. The Metropolitan Museum of Art was founded in 1870 by a group of citizen leaders that included businessmen and financiers, as well as leading artists and thinkers of the day who wanted to open a museum to bring art and art education to the American people. The Met made a cameo in these movies: “When Harry Met Sally,” “Maid in Manhattan,” and “Everyone Says I Love You.”
