Times Square, Central Park, the Statue of Liberty—these New York City landmarks are recognizable to people around the world, thanks in part to cinema.

According to Gothamist, film editor Sergio Rojo compiled clips from 70 films that span 56 years in order to make this epic supercut of New York City’s big screen appearances. Scenes from over 100 movies are filmed in the city in a year alone, so this doesn't come clost to covering New York’s entire filmography. But the films most famously associated with the setting—like Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961), Manhattan (1979), and Ghostbusters (1984)—are represented.

You can find the full list of featured titles on the video’s Vimeo page.
