Continue down the east side of Manhattan to stop in front of Holly Golightly's apartment from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” Venture into hidden neighborhoods, such as Sutton Place for a fantastic view of the Manhattan Bridge, just like in Woody Allen’s “Manhattan.”

Some locations have featured in countless films, including the Plaza Hotel, FAO Shwarz, Tiffany’s, Rockefeller Center, and the Empire State Building. End at Grand Central Station, another icon of the movies and Manhattan, to complete your film memorabilia tour.
