Cross Central Park, learning about the multitude of movies that have been filmed in this vast and lush urban oasis. Head downtown and see the famous subway grate on the corner of 52nd and Lexington that Marilyn Monroe stood over in The Seven-Year Itch. Have a look at Holly Golightly’s apartment in Breakfast at Tiffany's, and go to the lesser-known Sutton Place neighborhood to see the fabulous view of the Queensboro Bridge from Woody Allen's Manhattan.
Continue downtown, passing popular filming locations including giant toy store FAO Schwarz; the posh Plaza Hotel; and Rockefeller Center, famous for its wintertime ice rink and Christmas tree. And gaze up at the one and only Empire State Building to see where King Kong clung for dear life!
