      About this New York tour

      Central Park could be renamed Cinema Park – its magnificent architecture, sweeping green spaces, tree-lined pathways, bridges, monuments, and gathering places–straight out of central casting–make it an 843-acre movie set. By some counts, it's the most filmed movie and TV location in the world.

      In one two-hour stroll, you can visit the very spots where dozens of your favorite scenes were shot, such as the Bandshell, where parts of Breakfast at Tiffany's and Hair were shot. The Loeb Boathouse, where When Harry Met Sally for lunch and Sarah Jessica goes for an unplanned dip in Sex and the City. There's the Mall, where Dustin Hoffman teaches his son to ride a bike in Kramer vs. Kramer, and scenes from Serendipity, Maid in Manhattan, and Big Daddy were set.

      At the Bethesda Fountain, Kevin runs circles around the bad guys in Home Alone 2, with worse to come in a pigeon attack near the Inscope Arch. The princess pulls everyone in the park into her huge "That's How You Know" finale in Enchanted  – five screen minutes that took 17 days to shoot.

      Want to talk Woody Allen flicks? There may be enough of those with a Central Park backdrop for a separate tour.

      The first film shot here was an early Romeo and Juliet, in 1908. After that, the hits just kept on coming, and some bombs – every career has its bumps. But after more than a century and 500+ screen credits, this star is always ready for a close-up.

      The (in)famous Dakota

      Look up at the surrounding skyline and see the Dakota apartments looming gothically along Central Park West. Built in the 1880s, it's still one of Manhattan's most prestigious and expensive addresses. It's also one of the creepiest looking – the perfect setting for Rosemary's Baby and Vanilla Sky, and the tragic real-life site of John Lennon's murder in 1980. It's not easy to get into, either. Gene Simmons, Billy Joel, Antonio Banderas, and Carly Simon were all rejected by the co-op board.
