Stillwell Ave, The French Connection
This one was a tough call. The French Connection makes excellent use of the Brooklyn Bridge (reportedly they shot there without permits or permission), and hey, we're always up for telling people to go visit the Brooklyn Bridge. But if you want to poke around the place where they shot maybe the greatest car chase ever captured on film
, head down to Stillwell Ave, between Bay 50th and 86th, then head onto Utrecht Ave toward the 62nd St. Station. Just please, please don't be the person who tries to re-create it.
