NYC – July 2011 – Superman: The Movie Shooting Locations

On our recent (maybe not so recent) trip to NYC, the top “to-do” on my list was to visit some of the filming locations for my favourite movie of all time – Superman: The Movie.  Here are some pics!

Grand Central Station

Grand Central Station 2 - Lex Luthor's Sidekick, Otis (Ned Beatty), walks through Grand Central on his way to Luthor's underground lair.

The Daily Planet

The Daily Planet Exterior - unfortunately, it was covered by scaffolding.

The Daily Planet Exterior 2

The Daily Planet - this is the facade over which Lois Lane plummeted from the Daily Planet helicopter.

The Daily Planet - Detail - Clark Kent jumps out of one of these windows near the end of Superman the Movie. These are also the windows that General Zod and the Kryptonians blast through near the end of Superman II.
