"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Million Dollar Movie

Bags hipped me to a most cool site called Scouting New York.

Dig these two then-and-now posts on “Taxi Driver” and “Ghostbusters”:

I've been reading Scouting New York for a while now. As someone who works in the movie pictures, it's great to hear stories from another department. As a New Yorker, it's great to see someone find all the little details I've missed over the years.

2) No doubt! He could do a blog just about before-and-after movie locations!

What an utterly cool site!!! I've always loved watching movies filmed in and around NYC and being able to say "HEY! I know where that is!" Most recently happened while watching "Spiderman" where I realized Tobey Maguire was running down Ascan Ave & Austin Street in Forest Hills...literally 5 blocks from my apartment!

Oh, and as a sidebar to this whole location thing, but the story on that page about the pitbull was wonderful!!!
