Scouting NYC

This may be the coolest NYC blog yet: a feature films location scout named Nick Carr has a blog about the movies and locations he has scouted for.

He has worked on such films as The Taking of Pelham 1,2,3 and Doubt and, if there's a good location to use for a movie, he's the man to find it. He not only chronicles his scouting adventures on this blog but he provides insights about why certain locations were chosen for certain films. He also revisits locations for classic NYC films like Taxi Driver and Ghostbusters to let us know how they has changed or, in some cases, remained exactly.

You should definitely check out this blog and also listen to his great recent interview on WNYC's Leonard Lopate Show.
