The 25 Most Iconic New York Scenes in Movie History

10. Men In Black (1997)

Director: Barry Sonenfeld
Areas Featured: Queens World Fair

The fairgrounds at Flushing Meadows-Corona Park haven't been that popular since the 1964 World Fair, unless you're a skateboarder. Teen skaters have since claimed the turf as a skate spot, and don't face dangers of being abducted or having their minds erased.

The former New York State Pavilion's observation towers are better remembered as the ships the first aliens used to visit Earth in Men in Black. If you failed to notice that, it's probably because you were too concerned with alien captives escaping during the climax of the film. And, just like it was destroyed by a flying saucer in the movie, the unofficial symbol of Queens, which hasn't aged well, is up to be demolished in real life. -TA
