Brooklyn has been a part of the world of film since the first major movie studio opened in Midwood in 1897. From Prospect Park to the Brooklyn Bridge and down to Coney Island, the borough has set the scene for hundreds of beloved and acclaimed films. John Travolta strutted to the Bee Gees in Bay Ridge in Saturday Night Fever. Al Pacino’s famous “Attica” scene in Dog Day Afternoon was filmed steps away from Prospect Park. Numerous directors are uniquely linked to Brooklyn, including the unofficial “King of Brooklyn,” Spike Lee, indie director Noah Baumbach and newcomer Radha Blank. Author and Park Slope local Margo Donohue reveals more than 250 film locations as she guides readers through the landmark movies and hidden gems shot in the coolest borough in New York.
