NYC & Company, the official destination marketing organization for New York City, continues to spotlight ways armchair travelers can find an NYC-themed escape from the safety of home during the current global Covid-19 situation. On the heels of introducing Virtual NYC, the organization invites past and future travelers to enjoy countless stories in television and film for which the City has served as a backdrop. Whether it be an unplanned holiday trip, drama at an iconic museum, heroic battle in the shadow of NYC landmarks, friends experiencing daily life throughout the five boroughs, or anything in between, fans of any genre can get lost in a story set in the City while practicing social distancing.
“In countless landmark films and television shows, New York City plays a starring role,” said NYC & Company President and CEO Fred Dixon. “As people all over the world stay home and stay safe, they can still engage with the City through this powerful medium and be thoroughly entertained until it's time to visit again."
