NYC Fact: Woody Allen’s Bench

I likely moved to New York City because of Woody Allen films. The whole “Annie Hall” thing. But arguably his most famous New York scene is from 1979’s “Manhattan,” where Woody and Diane Keaton greet the dawn from a bench overlooking Queensboro Bridge.

For the first time in over a dozen years in New York, I went over to look at it today. The spot is on Sutton Square, at the very east end of E 58th St. There is no bench, but the wee park below has a few. And a guy texting in red.
