Frequently Asked Questions

Movies and TV shows throughout cinematic history have featured numerous filming locations in and around New York City. Divided into five boroughs — The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island — the Big Apple is home to certain neighborhoods that are more film-friendly than others. Check out noteworthy public places to film in NYC:
  • The Bronx: Boasting several of the most iconic filming locations in NYC, from the streets of Little Italy to the impressive Yankee Stadium, there's no shortage of places to choose from in this borough.
  • Brooklyn: This part of town is quickly becoming one of the most popular filming destinations in NYC. Among the best places to film in Brooklyn include historic Dumbo and artsy Williamsburg, which features dozens of art galleries, music venues, bars, and restaurants.
  • Manhattan: Of course, Manhattan is the quintessential place to go if you're looking for a classic New York City film location. From Central Park to Times Square to the Financial District, there's nowhere else quite like it.
  • Queens: Often overlooked as a filmmaking destination, Queens actually has a lot to offer. From the world-famous Queensboro Bridge to the bustling borough of Astoria, there are plenty of great locations to choose from in Queens.
  • Staten Island: Accessible to Manhattan by ferry, this borough provides a unique mix of urban and suburban settings that can be hard to find elsewhere. Popular film production locations here include the St. George Theatre, Snug Harbor Cultural Center, and Clove Lakes Park.

From the majestic Bethesda Fountain in Central Park to the scenic Brooklyn Bridge, it’s easy to recognize these landmarks when watching your favorite forms of media.
When searching for unique places to film in NYC, first determine the genre and type of project you’re working on. Are you shooting a short horror video or a full-length documentary? This helps narrow down your options, making it easier to find a location that suits your needs. In addition, follow the settings in the script. Are you looking for an indoor or outdoor space? Do you need a specific type of setting, such as an office, apartment, or warehouse? The next step is to budget for your rental.
If you’re using multiple filming locations, costs can add up quickly. As a result, it’s crucial to have a clear idea of how much you can afford to spend. After you have a budget in mind, start reaching out to venues that appear to be a good fit for your project. Ask about rates, availability, and any other fees that may apply. The last step is to visit the location in person before committing to anything. Pay attention to details like lighting, traffic noise, and other potential distractions that could affect your film. This way, you can determine if the space meets your needs and expectations.
With an endless array of skyline views, iconic landmarks, and diverse neighborhoods, it's no wonder so many filmmakers choose to set their stories in this city. In addition, each borough offers a variety of different architectural styles, which can be perfect for period pieces or more modern films. No matter what type of movie or TV show you're filming, there are plenty of unique video shoot locations in NYC that will fit your needs.

Manhattan Fully Equipped Studio | Empire State/Edge Views (Production)
great! Aly was fast with his responses. Xhosa helped with the studio set up and picking out the seamless rolls. He is also a b>film photographer! Studio B was the smallest out of all the ones available here. Lighting in the middle room was not the best around lunch time...
