From the cinema verité of the sixties to softer fare like
Splash, New York has provided some of the most iconic
moments on film. Beginning with a survey of such classics as
Breakfast at Tiffany's, Scenes from the City captures how
the changing face of New York, as well as the founding of
the MOFTB, have contributed to a particular school of film
characterized most emphatically in the street-style work of
directors as diverse as Martin Scorsese and Spike Lee. With
over 200 stills and contributions from noted New York film
personalities such as Sidney Lumet and Nora Ephron, the book
also includes rare, unpublished, behind-the-scenes shots and
stories from the quintessential New York filmmaker
himself—Woody Allen. With a special section on the landmark
TV series, commercials and music videos filmed in New York,
Scenes from the City is an affectionate and vivacious
ovation for this captivating "character" that rarely
receives billing but always steals the show.
