Family Movies and Travel

We just had a terrific family trip to NYC and points east, and one of the many fun elements of walking around New York was remembering all the movies shot at the famous scenes we walked by. Just a few examples, the "Home Alone 2" scenes in Central Park, the ice cream shop in "Serendipity," the bike-riding scene in "Kramer vs. Kramer" on the Mall at Central Park, the computer-generated scenes in "The Day After Tomorrow" . . . and of course "Sleepless in Seattle" at the top of the Empire State. The list goes on and on. It's a nice way to engage your kids in the scenery without going on blah-blah-blah about 300 years of history.
