17 of Our Fave Romantic Comedies Set in New York City
New York City is home to a lot of things. Great museums and restaurants, some of the best shopping around, and must-see landmarks. It’s also home to some of the best romantic comedies of all time! Every great rom-com is set in NYC. That’s just a fact. It’s not officially dubbed “the city of love” (that’s Paris!) but it should be! The magic of a romantic comedy seems that much better when The Big Apple is the backdrop.
As Sex and the City stated, NYC is often another character in the story. In many of these romantic comedies, the city is the catalyst for a couple getting together and falling in love. There is just something special about navigating life, work, and love in the city. All of these rom-coms capture the essence of getting swept off your feet in New York. Sure, most of these films are super unrealistic. But that doesn’t stop us from loving them (and basing our love life decisions on them…). Here are the very best romantic comedies set in NYC!
