NEW YORK ON FILM By Phillip Harwood
Join film historian Philip Harwood for a tour of New York City on the big screen in such classics as King Kong, When Harry Met Sally and many more!
The Early years of filmmaking actually began here in the Northeast, with studios in New Jersey, Brooklyn, and Long Island, before moving out West. Throughout the history of Narrative film, New York has played a major role. Join Film Historian Philip Harwood, as he takes you on a celluloid tour of Manhattan, and beyond: 42nd Street (1933), the
Empire State Building (King Kong), the Statue of Liberty (Saboteur), Rockefeller Center (On The Town), Yankee Stadium (Speedy), Katz's Deli (When Harry Met Sally), and others.
Philip Harwood has had a life-long passion for the arts, especially film. He is currently an Adjunct Lecturer in the Hutton House Lectures at LIU: C.W. Post, and teaches at the 92nd Street Y, and the JCC in Manhattan. He was Coordinator for Lifelong Learning at Queens College, where he also programmed the annual Summer Film Festival.
