Movies with a View returns, with 'Manhattan'

By Meredith Deliso

Brooklyn Bridge Parks Movies with a View outdoor film series returns next week with a movie called Manhattan.

Forgive the snub, and head to Pier 1 tonight  after all the Spike Lee of Manhattan never made a movie called Brooklyn, so this is the next best thing.

This summer tradition is focusing on the view part of the name, as most of the films screened have a Manhattan focus which only makes sense, given the city views from the park at the foot of Old Fulton Street.

Woody Allens 1979 dramedy is a nostalgically black-and-white study on arrested development, starring Allen and Mariel Hemingway as his much younger love interest. Diane Keaton, who shares the bench with Allens character in the iconic shot under the 59th Street Bridge, is the more age-appropriate flame.

Its a must-see, even if it is about that other borough.

“Manhattan” at Pier 1 [Old Fulton Street at Furman Street in DUMBO, (718) 802-0603], July 7 with seating starting at 6 pm and the movie beginning after sunset. Free. For info, visit
