Even if you're a casual movie fan, it's impossible to visit a major city and not conjure the memory of a favorite movie that was shot there. You walk into the main concourse of Grand Central Station in New York City, and it triggers a flood of cherished moments — "North by Northwest," "The Fisher King," "Carlito's Way" etc. You look up at the Empire State Building and see "King Kong!" You glance over to the Chrysler Building and there's Q, the Winged Serpent! Metropolises like the Big Apple are loaded with film history. But which movies own these towns? Let's trot around the globe to 50 cities and attempt to determine which fictional films best exemplify their real-life setting.

Have you ever heard of the term 'knolling?' I hadn't, but it is apparently one of the hottest Instagram trends out there right now, and even emergency services are getting involved!
So knolling is a type of flat-lay photography, where different objects are arranged at 90-degree angles from each other, then photographed from above. The look is symmetrical and pleasing to the eye and allows people to see a variety of objects in a single picture; perfect for demonstrating equipment or an inventory, for example. The process has been further popularized through LEGO, where builders carefully arranged their bricks by shape, style and color before getting to work on construction.
