    About half of them!  TV shows too.  America seems to have no saturation  point for interest in this city - probably for good reason.  Off the top of my head:
    You've Got Mail
    Sex in the City
    Goodbye Girl
    Kiss Me Goodbye
    The Perfect Murder
    Something's Got to Give (Worst title for a movie ever!)
    The Odd Couple
    All The Godfather's movies

    Just off the top of my head:
    The "Men In Black" series (MiB is headquartered in NYC)
    The finale in all three versions of "King Kong" end in New York.
    Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan
    All of the Spider-Man films
    Tower Heist
    Death Wish
    Die Hard With a Vengeance
    Both Ghostbusters films

    ...and I just read in the paper yesterday that "Sharknado 2" is currently being filmed in New York City!! Woohoo!

    The majority of Woody Allen and Spike Lee movies were shot in New York City.

    Hollywood MAGIC says they cut in some NY skylines (day & night) , traffic and traffic jams look the same no matter where they are shot and paint the cabs, buses  and firetrucks the proper colors , scenes of Central Park, NY streets, etc  and talk about things and places in NY but shoot the interiors right here in LA. Second units, stock footage and digital cameras make it SEEM like they are there but they aren't.  Universal has a back lot with many streets that can look like NY, Chicago , Miami...whatever city you may need even some overseas. Not every film has the budget to travel actors and crew to Budapest  or London so the back lot is "dressed" to look like what is needed and camera angles are critical in not breaking the illusion" You'd be shocked to find how many actors never get to go to these places.
    That's what it is all about!!!!!

      Toronto, Canada has "doubled" for New York City in many films and TV shows as well....

    A great movie made in NYC that wasn't very popular and even had Robin Williams in a dark rather than comic role is "August Rush".
