Why people often confuse Toronto (yes, Toronto) with New York
The official Web site of the city of Toronto brazenly includes a list of productions (both film and TV) shot in Toronto, while supposedly representing New York. There's a whole archive of films, from 1979-2004. In just the past three years, for example, The Cinderella Man, Dark Water, Ice Princess, 111 Gramercy Park (a TV pilot), Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen and Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle were all filmed in Toronto.
Here's a link to "Great Locations to Shoot in Toronto" from the Toronto Film & Television Office -- see if any of these locations can possibly recreate the ambience and feel of New York City. The image to the left, for example, is Union Station Hall - a poor man's version of Grand Central Terminal.
