And now to pair you lo mein or spare ribs with some Brooklyn film classics:


Sophie’s Choice
This classic flick from 1982 conveys post-war Midwood, Brooklyn and has a dramatic scene in the Brooklyn Public Library. It is one of Meryl Streep’s earlier excellent performances. Take a blast back to mid-19th century Brooklyn when Jackie Robinson was stealing home at Ebbett’s Field.

Saturday Night Fever
The year is 1977 and disco is alive and well in Bay Ridge. This iconic John Travolta movie has one of the most memorable soundtracks in Hollywood. This will bring you back to the days of greasy hair, platform shoes, bell bottoms, and will most definitely make you feel the funk.

Dog Day Afternoon
Based on an actual Brooklyn bank robbery, this 1977 movie stars Al Pacino and won an Oscar. It is a fascinating take on the media’s influence on daily life. The actual bank robbery took place at 450 Avenue P in Midwood.

The Warriors
“Can you dig it?” This classic 1979 Coney Island-centered movie remains a cult classic to this day and is a must-see for any Brooklynite, native or transplanted.

Happy holidays, everyone!
