Stay : New York of Woody Allen

The favorite American filmmaker of the French people is completely from New York. An inexhaustible source of inspiration, his favourite city sets the scene for the majority of his films. This is evidenced by the first sequence shot of Manhattan (1979), a true tribute to the spectacular beauty of this city. You can find the themes that are very important to Woody Allen in this rather autobiographical film: jazz, friendship, writing and of course, women…

"Fame brought me a big advantage: women who say no to me are more beautiful than ever."

Here's a non-exhaustive list of places gathered through the scenes of Annie Hall, Manhattan or Broadway Danny Rose that allows, in the footsteps of the director, to discover among the most emblematic places of Big Apple.
