As I’ve probably mentioned, one of my favorite things when I travel is to see places I’ve read about, or recognize from movies or TV. So New York was quite the experience, as that seemed to be happening to me every time I turned around! I counted media references in my trip scrapbook–over thirty. I won’t try to tell you about all of them… Here are just a few pictures I snapped with the thought, “oh, I’ve seen that!”
This bridge in Central Park is not only beautiful, but Patrick Dempsey strolls along it during Made of Honor, a very cute chick flick.
Bethesda Fountain, also in Central Park, figures in a great musical number in Enchanted. It’s also the iconic image from Angels in America. I recommend the first, not so much the second.
I was thrilled in Washington Square to unexpectedly stumble across the arch from August Rush, a wonderful movie starring Freddie Highmore.
Anyone else with movie-settings-in-real-life stories? 🙂 And of course, visit At Home with Books for more Saturday Snapshots!
