    I'd put Mean Streets or Taxi Driver, or Do the Right Thing. It has to be either Scorsese or Spike Lee.

    The essential New York television show: Early Law and Order, would pick Seinfeld but wasn't filmed in New York.
    I'd say NYPD Blue. Hard to argue with those opening credits. I'd watch the show over and over just for that...

    The essential New York Deli: Katz's
    Carnegie

    The essential New York art neighborhood: Still Tribeca
