New York Movies to Watch When You’re Stuck Indoors

I wish I could be out and about in the city tonight, but outside is colder than the city’s attitude toward NYCHA residents (oops) and I’m not trying to lose any fingers or toes this winter. Instead, I’m going to live vicariously through a movie set in NYC. And with NYC being the most popular…
