I ♥ NY

Best opening scene ever.  I watched Woody Allen’s Manhattan late last night on HBO and enjoyed it immensely.  But the opening scene of New York was remarkable.  It’s very similar to the opening scene of his most recent film, Midnight in Paris, which I also love dearly (and is nominated for several Oscars).  Both NYC and Paris are home to me, I can never get enough of them, warts and all.

Hard to believe that Manhattan was released in 1979.  But George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue playing in the background as the cityscapes of NYC unfold before your eyes is timeless.  And, grand.  Best city in the world.

“New York was his town, and it always would be.”
