The New York Times recently posted this video explaining programs that create tax credits for film productions made in New York City. The tax incentive program, most commonly referred to as Made In NY, kept many films shooting in the city instead of defaulting to other locations that may resemble NYC, like Toronto or Vancouver, Canada. The piece also highlights some growing concern over maintaining these costly programs when those funds could be diverted for more practical uses throughout NYC. Overall, the video sheds some light on why there's nothing like filming in New York City, whether it be visually or financially.
