The 25 Most Iconic New York Scenes in Movie History

24. Wall Street (1987)

Director: Oliver Stone
Areas Featured: Central Park

The final confrontation in Oliver Stone's mighty '80s tale of greed, fathers and sons, and capitalism, takes place in Central Park. A gorgeous extreme long shot captures the expanse of green cropped by the gray buildings and some low-hanging mist. Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) and Bud Fox (Charlie Sheen) approach each other for one last talk. Only Fox is wearing a wire, intent on taking down Gekko for his corrupt business practices. The park typically functions as a place of reprieve. Before Stone's camera, it becomes the site of a duel.-RS
