NYC in the Movies Mashup

John Musser, September 25th, 2006

NYC MoviesThis fall the New York City Mayor’s Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting will celebrate its 40th anniversary with the publication of a book, Scenes From The City, and a series cultural events across the city. But in addition they have created an excellent web mashup: Scenes from the City Interactive Map. It’s a Yahoo! Maps mashup that makes good use of Yahoo’s Flash integration. Find the locations of hundreds of iconic films and television shows: The Godfather, The French Connection, Saturday Night Fever, The Warriors, Bonfire of the Vanities, North by Northwest, and The Lost Weekend.

It does a lot of things well including providing multiple ways to browse and search as well as map markers that pop-up to show small and large images as well as film details. You can search by director (including Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen, Alfred Hitchcock, Terry Gilliam and others), time period the film was made, neighborhood, or scene type (chases, rooftops, subway, landmarks, etc). It even integrates with IMDB, a nice touch.
