Will the real New York stories please stand up?
Q: With Produced By: New York coming up, we're curious: What film, TV program or story most vividly captures the city? Which production has that authentic New York feel?
Under the Boardwalk: The MONOPOLY Story
While Broad City episodes are often filled with fantastical elements and storylines, the show always feels authentic to the NYC I’ve grown to know. Many shows set in New York play it safe by filming on closed sets and stages, but Broad City often shoots on locations around the city. Additionally, the casting does a great job of reflecting real-world diversity in race, gender, and sexual identity.
When Harry Met Sally immediately pops to mind, as it perfectly captured a slice of real-life NYC, strolling through the Met discussing paprikash and pecan pie, finding apartments through the obituaries and charming doormen, the uniquely New York sights and sounds of the holiday hustle-bustle. I love spending a couple of enchanting hours living vicariously as a New Yorker.

Married at First Sight: The First Years
Broadway is something that comes to mind immediately when thinking about New York. Although most of the movie takes place in a theatre, Birdman does a great job capturing the velocity and high energy of the city. Nothing beats that scene of Riggan (Michael Keaton) running down Times Square in his tighty-whities.
