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.

Manhattan: The Lost Weekend - Billy Wilder (1945)

Amazingly enough, the bar where the alcooholic protagonist enjoys his hard liquor is still open. More details here.
