Winner for the New York City/Boston TV & Movie Sites Tour is…Posted 10:46 am on Friday, August 24th, 2012 by John 'Spartan' Nguyen
Our New York City/Boston TV & Movie Sites Tour contest, with the help from On Location Tours, is finally over. The winner will receive two tickets to a location of their choice, New York or Boston.
There were a lot of good submissions, but this one was an easy pick for me, since the winner was able to bring back some fond memories from my childhood. Here’s the winning entry:
“My favorite New York City movie moments would have to be from the movie Home Alone Lost In New York. Throughout this whole movie Macaulay Culkin, whose character Kevin McCallister, is in the famous Plaza Hotel ordering tons of room service, shopping in a big toy store, hanging around Central Park and at the end of the movie he ends up at the famous Rockefeller Center where they show the famous Rockefeller Christmas Tree where many New Yorkers get together every year to see the lighting of this famous tree. It is hard to pick just one great New York City moment in this movie because this movie represents the nostalgia and all that is great about New York City!!”
There are a lot of cool New York City moments in movies, but I remembered how Home Alone 2 made me feel. This movie actually made me want to visit New York City. And I’m such a sucker for Christmas music.
Jenny, if you’re reading this, send me an email for the 411.
