This opening scene from Woody Allen's "Manhattan" is why we should never ever try to make a movie about Manhattan in a 5-minute travel video. It is also one of the many films that creates the mythical New York we all have come to love and why so many people feel New York has that strange familiarity.

PS. Originally I wanted to post the scene from the Hayden Planetarium but I could only find it in Italian. Not that it matters, but I settled for the opening instead. By the way, this film with its creepy prescient love story of Woody Allen playing a man in love with a teen-ager is also the reason we might want to over look the fact that Woody Allen became a creepy older man in love with a teen-ager. Confused? Don't worry about it. Everyone is confused sometimes. Even Woody Allen.
