ICONIC NYC LANDMARKS IN FILMS & TV SHOWS 🎬🗽
🍿🤓 Taxi Driver (1976)
Times Square is a major commercial intersection, tourist destination, entertainment hub, and neighborhood in Midtown Manhattan. It is formed by the junction of Broadway, Seventh Avenue, and 42nd Street. Together with adjacent Duffy Square, Times Square is a bowtie-shaped space five blocks long between 42nd and 47th Streets.
Formerly known as Longacre Square, Times Square was renamed in 1904 after The New York Times moved its headquarters to the then newly erected Times Building, now One Times Square. It is the site of the annual New Year's Eve ball drop, which began on December 31, 1907, and continues to attract over a million visitors every year.
The night lights of Times Square recur in Taxi Driver. But at the time, this place, now very popular was not as safe and had a bad reputation, like its many cinemas that have disappeared.
"Following Travis Bikle (Robert de Niro), a tormented Vietnam veteran, Taxi Driver paints a portrait of the gruesome New York of the 1970s, masterfully filmed by Martin Scorsese. Winner of the Palme d'Or 1976 at Cannes, it is considered one of the greatest films of all time.”
