Woody Allen

There used to be a bookstore -- I think it was the late Gotham Book Mart on 46th Street -- where you'd find a yellowing map of Woody Allen's New York: a listing of the locations the writer and director had made famous in such films as "Annie Hall," "Manhattan" and "Hannah and Her Sisters."

10 summer movies that we're actually looking forward toupdated: Thu Apr 15 2010 16:25:00

Summer is just around the corner, which means that we should brace ourselves for the usual drought at the movie house. Why does it seem like summer movies are always just a bunch of cheesy blockbusters, packed with comic book characters and explosions? Maybe it's because the film industry assumes that we're outside soaking up the sun and have lost some brain cells as a result. But for those of us who are allergic to the beach or are staging a "sit-in" against wrinkles, is it too much to ask that we have a few good summer film options? No, I say. I've searched far and wide for the top 10 summer movies that shouldn't suck. You're welcome.

New York City: City overviewupdated: Thu Oct 05 2006 05:56:00

New York is an instantly recognizable brand -- the ultimate distillation of metropolitan living and the imperial city of American capitalism. Hyperactive, hysterical and self-obsessively hip, nowhere else has been so mythologized by popular culture. Entire musical genres -- disco, punk and hip-hop -- were shaped there. The sidewalks, subway and skyline have inspired a lifetime of work by Gothamite auteurs such as Martin Scorsese and Woody Allen. That creativity reflects New York's restless kinetic energy. Everyone here is making something, whether it's money, music or margheritas. The huddled masses these days are more likely to be stockbrokers crammed on a downtown train, but nowhere in the world can match New York's diversity. Wave after wave of immigrants have adopted corners of the city as their own, creating an interlinked patchwork of communities representing virtually every country and culture on earth. New Yorkers may be infamous straight talkers with an inflated sense of their own importance, but
