Top 50 Greatest NYC Movies — #7
Sidewalks of New York (dir. Edward Burns, 2001)
Actor-director Edward Burns’ best film is sadly his least famous as well. This valentine to our city is told through six equally important lead characters; five natives, one born in each of the five boroughs, and one transplant from the Midwest who may be the most exemplary representative of all the city’s inhabitants. Each one has a different take on how the city affects life and love. The debate between Burns and Heather Graham’s characters about who is the truer New Yorker (a Manhattanite or a native of Queens) is priceless.
