Excellent article in The Guardian:

The three figures in the late-night diner of Edward Hopper’s quintessential New York painting Nighthawks tell us about the loneliness of life in the big city, while the criss-cross lines of Piet Mondrian’s Broadway Boogie Woogie seem to dance to its syncopated rhythms. Whether it’s Harold Lloyd dangling from a skyscraper, or Robert De Niro prowling the streets in his taxi cab, New York appears to exists in our collective imagination as a series of frozen images and screen grabs.
