    Neat list. ‘Apes was a surprise, albeit a pleasant one. I also thought Barney Miller was a neat twist and you made a decent argument.

  • I loved this article! I LOVE the warriors, and Barney Miller always depressed me! Now I know why!

    Great list- Barney Miller was surprising but fits perfectly. I felt like the Lost Weekend should be ranked lower, though, or perhaps replaced by Seinfeld.

    Technically, New York in the Planet of the Apes was the Forbidden Zone, not the Ape’s City. The Statue of Liberty is discovered after a ride from the cave in the Forbidden Zone down the coast on a horse – a ride of unknown length. The Ape City itself is likely in a place that already features plenty of apes: New Jersey.

    Where does Cloverfield go? 11?

  • Another 2 nightmarish New York City movies are The Naked City and The Incident. The Incident is particularly nasty. New York City in black and white always have a bad feel to it.

    No Soylent Green?

    • Batman

      I agree – the portrayal of New York in Soylent Green is rather ghastly
