Top 50 Greatest NYC Movies — #24
Green Card (dir. Peter Weir, 1990)
One common sight that often impresses out-of-town visitors to New York is the rooftop gardens. In a densely populated place like Manhattan, the roof is the most open space for greenery that can be found. In the sparkling comedy, Green Card, the stunning garden at the Aylsmere apartment house on the Upper West Side is the catalyst for the romantic action. Also a good look at how co-op apartments in the city make new tenants jump through hoops, this charming tale of a couple who falls in love after getting married also makes good use of important locations for NYC marriages, such as Bethesda Terrace and the court buildings of the Civic Center.
