NYC locations of Annie Hall, then and nowJul 24 2012

Scouting NY takes a look at some filming locations used by Woody Allen for Annie Hall to see how they've changed in the past 36 years.

Annie Hall Then Now

The most unexpected thing about looking at old photos of NYC is how many fewer trees there were than there are now. (via ★spavis)

Annie HallFeb 09 2010

A young-ish Christopher Walken appears in Annie Hall but his name is misspelled in the credits as "Christopher Wlaken". Were this 1990, I might have invented a eastern European backstory for Wlaken, who, perhaps, Americanized his name sometime after appearing in the film. But as we live in the future, a cool hunk of glass and metal from my pocket told me -- before the credits even finished rolling -- that the actor was born Ronald Walken in Astoria, Queens.

The future isn't any fun sometimes.
