The list of movies and TV shows shot in New York City is basically endless—and, as we know well from Scouting NY, it's continuously growing. Many are classics, in which the city itself plays as much of a role as any title character or actor. Ever wonder whether the backdrops to some of these city-set classics are still the same? Well, there's an app for that. Scenepast, a repository of more than 600 film and TV locations nationwide, presents a still from the small or silver screen alongside an image of what the location looks like today. Thanks to their research, take a look at eight other New York-based scenes to see what has (or hasn't) changed.
