Not DeNiro’s New York

I just recently watched “Taxi Driver” for the first time, and aside from the blunt portrayal of craziness, I was struck most by the fact that the New York City I saw on-screen (circa 1975) looked nothing like the one I live in.

If you want to get depressed (or thrilled, depending on your viewpoint), check out this movie site scout’s series on how various locations have changed. Teaser: The peep show is now a Duane Reade.
