  • A scene from “Sex in the City” (2008)

    Since the beginning of cinema, New York City has lent its iconic skyline, hurried streets and imposing buildings to movies of all genres. From the Busby Berkeley musicals of the 1930s to some of the best of Woody Allen’s oeuvre, filmmakers turned to the city as the ultimate backdrop to tell their stories.

    Often, these movies are set within the home — think Patrick Bateman’s gleaming apartment in “American Psycho.” Sadly, most of these fictional homes were built on sound stages, with quick pans of the building’s exterior used as device to ground these apartments in reality.

    Though, that wasn’t always the case. Click here for The Real Deal’s rundown of eight movies that were filmed on location in New York City apartments.

There were, however, several signs of change for the 121-year-old organization. Hiten Samtani spoke with REBNY president John Banks on the red carpet. Watch the interview here.

  • Bob Knakal and Hiten Samtani at the REBNY gala

  • MaryAnne Gilmartin and Hiten Samtani at the REBNY gala

    At the Real Estate Board of New York’s annual gala last week, Forest City Ratner president MaryAnne Gilmartin used her lifetime achievement award as a soapbox.

    On the red carpet, Gilmartin echoed a similar sentiment, as she chatted one-on-one with The Real Deal managing web editor Hiten Samtani. Catch the full one-on-one interview here.

    New York real estate has long been viewed as an insular world where white men pull the strings. Though issues of discrimination and diversity are at the very least starting to be addressed in other industries, the city’s brokerage, investment and development communities are lagging behind when it comes to leveling the playing field.

    For the cover story of our January issue, The Real Deal took an in-depth look at this exclusionary culture, the female and minority players who are defying the odds and what needs to happen for change to occur. [WATCH].
