From King Kong climbing the Empire State Building to the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man lumbering through Columbus Circle, New York has been the setting for some of the most recognizable moments on film. Join filmmaker and author James Sanders for an illustrated lecture about the nexus between New York City filmmaking and New York City planning. How are New York public spaces and social ideals shaped and modeled into Hollywood sets? James Sanders is the author of Celluloid Skyline and of Scenes from the City: Filmmaking in New York. This event was held at the Lower East Side Tenement Museum.
