Woody Allen's "Manhattan" in Central Park

A couple weekends ago, I went to Central Park's Sheap's Meadow to watch the Woody Allen movie, "Manhattan." I'd never seen it before but figured I'd get appreciate it since it is about life in the city. This 1979 black and white romantic comedy shows images of the city during the opening credits, like the skyline, famous landmarks, people on the streets and more. This montage caught everyone's attention in the park, as camera flashes went off like crazy, capturing the familiar locations, especially during the iconic scene during the movie where the characters played by Woody Allen and Diane Keaton sit on a park bench overlooking the East River and with the Queensborough Bridge in view.
