Movie Filming Locations in New York City.

I've been looking at a few movies recently, and wondered where their exact filming locations are. If I host a few images, can you help me out?

First up, is a shot from Little Nicky.



Look forward to reading your replies on the location.

Good point - you could be right there. Any ideas on the restaurant in the background of the Little Nicky frame?

If the name of the restaurant wasn't so blurry, you could just look it up in the phone book.

That Elf location is right in Times Square. I believe it's between 49th and 50th Streets on the same side of the street as the Virgin Megastore. I walk past it all the time.

No idea on the Little Nicky one.

does that say Ulysses Restaurant? and that black metal railing... is he in a small park?... like maybe Bryant Park?... probably not, the surrounding area there doesn't look like that.

I ate for the first time at Cafe Gitane the day before I saw Allen's Melinda and Melinda which prominently shows off the little place. Great cafe too, highly recommended.

Thanks for your help guys... If anyone else knows of any of these locations, I'd greatly appreciate it.

I have a few more to add later, so please check back.

I love in Armageddon, Godzilla and all these other action movies when they blow up the Flatiron building on Herald Square by 23rd St. Why? Because I temped there once not that it was a horrible job, but that's still cool to watch your place of employment blow up on a regular basis . Of course blowing up national landmarks is frowned upon nowadays, even in movies.
I've participated in several indie flick shoots in NYC, including Brooklyn and here in the burbs, and am planning to direct a short soon so that's my pitch

The end credits usually list all the locations where the movie was filmed.

True, but usually it just lists "New York City" as the location, not every corner and park they shot in and around. That's why people are asking.
