Catch a movie, a sunset, and a city view in NYC Aug 04, 2011
New York City has a host of free outdoor movie options that run the gamut of children's movies, blockbusters, classics, and indie films. At the bottom of this post is a link to Time Out NY's complete list of dates and movies, but for a little more perspective, here are my top three favorite locations:

Summer on the Hudson: Movies Under the Stars

A setting by the water is always a winner, and Hudson River Park is one of the nicest parks in general in Manhattan. Come here after a stroll on the Highline, or bring a picnic from a restaurant or deli in Chelsea.

Movies with a View at Brooklyn Bridge Park

My absolute favorite for a breathtaking view of the Manhattan skyline. Come for a sunset that will remind you of what you love about NYC, and stay for the film.

Bryant Park Summer Film Festival

The movies at Bryant Park are always classics (think Airplane!). Be warned, the lawn gets PACKED. Come early to get a spot up close or you won't be able to hear. Also, insider tip, be prepared to get up and do a dance after the Bryant Park opening credits.
