For the location (outside of Los Angeles) with largest number of shooting days, tonight, the Oscar
should go to New York City.
It’s about time that New York is recognized as a major player in the movie making business. After all, we New Yorkers have to put up with actors and celebrities who call New York home and movie trailers that clog our streets so we can’t park our cars on about 30,000 location days every year.
New York City has acted as the backdrop for movies such as The Adjustment Bureau (2011), Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010), Eat Pray Love (2010), Sex and the City (2008), The Bourne Ultimatum (2007), Inside Man (2006), The Interpreter (2005) and scores more.
And according to the Mayor’s Office of Film and Television, the following films are currently in production in the city:
- Another Night
- Black Parables
- Don Peyote
- Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close
- I Don’t Know How She Does It
- A Late Quartet
- Men in Black 3
- Untitled David Chase Project
- Welcome to Harlem
Yes, it’s definitely time for Oscar to recognize New York City for all she does to make his movies real.
Let me know if you agree.

Good call on that one Marcia, with London a close second maybe?
Thanks, Tony. Yes, London definitely.
I guess I’ll have to tell you about King’s Speech later. Still didn’t get a chance to see it today.
The King’s Speech!!!
So true. Last Friday after leaving my office I walked right into a movie crew with trucks and lights. This is become a regular fixture in NYC. Can’t remember the name of the movie being shot though.
There was one a block from me on 5th last evening. They’re everywhere!
