Old New York Movie Magic

I posted this before, but I was doing a little mid-winter blog clean up and I thought I'd re-post. One of the best movie car chase scenes ever. It's not the usual chase; with unscripted accidents, a car chasing a subway train overhead, two story lines are going on at once, and all at the same time we get to see a late seventies southern Brooklyn.

Yeah I suppose adding my age into it, didn't really matter.

Reminds me of the time not too long ago when I chased a girl who was beating me for a $20 fare into a project building in the Bronx. Except I didn't catch her. Great exercise, though!
