When we watch a movie, we barely take notice of its surroundings…or we do? You’d be surprised if you knew how many “important ” buildings appeared in famous movies and, after reading this post, you will definitely want to see these places.
Some of them became famous after the movie was shot and others were NYC icons.
Le’ts take a look at three buildings that became popular in the movie industry:
1. Ghost Busters – 55 Central Park West, Manhattan
Nicknamed “Spook Central,” this apartment is located between West 65th and 66th Streets. Almost everyone has seen the famous movie, Ghostbusters. In this film, musician Dana Barrett (played by Sigourney Weaver), lived in this high rise building along Central Park. This small apartment features a living room, one bedroom, kitchen and bath. This building was built in 1929 and was designed by Schwartz and Gross, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

2. VIA57 West – 625West 57th Street.
This building, designed by architect Bjarke Ingels, is without any doubt the most iconic building in NYC, and offers its residents a world of amenities to enjoy. Besides, it’s green throughout to preserve the environment with the latest technology.
There haven’t yet been any films shot in this building (that I know of), but if I had to choose one, I would choose Spider-Man. I can imagine Peter Parker climbing its 34 stories and jumping on the rooftop. Its glass façade would fit perfectly well in this movie, with a unique shape and structure that stands out over the rest. So, if Director Sam Raimi reads this post, he’ll probably take my opinion into account for his next Spider-Man movie! http://www.via57west.com/#amenities-overview
3. Empire State Buildling – 350 5th Ave
This 102-story skyscraper is one of the world’s most iconic buildings, located on Fifth Ave between 33rd and 34th streets in Midtown Manhattan. It stood for over 40 years as the World’s tallest building, and is without any doubt one of New York City’s most beautiful constructions.
Anyone who has watched the movie King Kong can remember it, especially the giant ape escaping and climbing The Empire State Building, only to fall from the skyscraper after being shot by planes. This is probably one of the most classic scenes in the movies, and this building will always be related to this film.
NYC is loaded with action, movies and beautiful skyscrapers, and is the perfect place to find no-fee Midtown West Rentals. Want to learn more about architecture? Access this link: http://store.frameweb.com/magazines/frame/.
