Scenes from the City

On October 17, 2006, Rizzoli published Scenes from the City: Filmmaking in New York 1966-2006, edited by James Sanders and produced with the Mayor's Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting. Featuring over 250 color and black- and-white images – including dozens of rare and unusual production stills – the book traces the city's groundbreaking, forty-year cinematic history decade by decade, recalling some of the best-remembered films, places, and moments of each period and highlighting the street-style work of directors as diverse as Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen, Spike Lee and Sidney Lumet. Along the way, it offers a revealing look at some of the legendary New York neighborhoods and districts—from SoHo to Times Square, the East Village to the Upper West Side, Coney Island to Harlem—that have been unforgettably captured on celluloid over the years.
