As promised, here's a focus on New York based movies!
I have never ever been to New York. Therefore, you have to forgive me if my understanding of the city if not tremendous. I found a few maps looking a lot like the one you can see above, which has already helped me better understand how the city is set up. I will add a few neighborhoods to the ones listed though. For instance, I would like to talk about Harlem and Greenwich Village.
Amazingly enough, the bar where the alcooholic protagonist enjoys his hard liquor is still open. More details here.
The Tenenbaums' memorable house is located in Hamilton Heights in Harlem.
Some important locations of the movie -like Henry's childhood home- are located in Queens.
New York native James Gray likes making movies that show the darker side of his hometown.
From what I remember, we don't know exactly where the action is supposed to take place, but the movie was filmed in Staten Island.
