On March 29, 1971, The Godfather, considered by many to be one of the greatest films ever made, began principal photography in New York City.
Because the film is a period piece, The Godfather actually presents a fascinating record of what 1940s-era New York City locations still existed in the early-1970s. Sadly, many of them are now gone. What still remains?
Some cool images and locations collected here. I especially love loved the runway/tollbooth scene they found.
