Our Favourite Movies set in New York!

Get prepared for your upcoming New York adventure by watching some of the greatest movies featuring the City itself! New York has had a starring role in so many amazing movies it was hard to pick just six, but here are our favourites! Let us know your favourite New York City set film by tweeting us at @AmeriCamp!

Ghostbusters:
A classic from the 1980’s, Ghostbusters sees three parapsychology professors (and Winston) take on ghosties and ghoulies in an adventure that leaves New York smeared in green goo.

Madagascar
Before the kooky collective of animals are washed up on a tropical island, they were happily enjoying life in the Central Park Zoo. From riding the subway to enjoying the lullaby of sirens, these creatures are true New Yorkers.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s
New York in the 1960s and Audrey Hepburn are the dreamiest of combinations! If you don’t want to flaunt around the city in your best outfit after this then I don’t know what will!

Big
Everyone loves this film, it’s impossible not to! Tom Hanks is the sweetest 35-year-old around! It’s such a shame that we can’t still recreate that iconic floor piano scene at FAO Schwarz. Sad face!

Home Alone 2: Lost in New York
We know this one isn’t as good as the first. I mean, how does this kid lose his family AGAIN! Anyway, the scene featuring Kevin riding around in a limo while chomping down on pizza makes up for that because that was everyone’s dream as a kid! It kind of still is…

The Devil Wears Prada
This is a film that is impossible to dislike! Get a taste of what life is like for the rich and fashionable in New York and be ready to be totally envious!
