Did you know that parts of “The Wolf of Wall Street” were shot in Fort Greene? Or that several stretches of Williamsburg appear in “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”? Filmed in NYC culls three years of NYC movie filming permits and funnels them into an interactive—and quite entertaining—map that’s sure to get even the most jaded New Yorker “oh huh, that’s cool” at least once. Created by Metrocosm, the map highlights an impressive 17,241 filming locations and 517 movies, a mix of blockbusters and B-movies among them.

As expected, locales like Times Square, Central Park South, and other iconic Midtown destinations boast well over 30 shoots. The Financial District is another hotspot, as are Williamsburg, Greenpoint and Harlem. The real fun, however, starts when you start exploring more obscure streets and un-Hollywood neighborhoods. Try the map out here >>
