Mapping the Most Popular Movie Locations in New York City

New, 3 comments

The folks over at Metrocosm wrangled all the film permit data from the Mayor's Office of Film, Theatre, and Broadcasting from between 2011 and 2013 and put together an interactive map that shows every New York City location where a permit was issued during that span. Unsurprisingly, Midtown (Times Square in particular) led the charge with 842 permits, followed by Williamsburg (771), and the Financial District (644). You can also search by individual movie, if you've been dying to know where they shot A Bunch of Lingonberries or F-ckers (both real things, apparently).
