Movie City | Brooklyn
Updated October 19, 2010
Take a closer look at the New York borough that is home to Focus Features’ It’s Kind of a Funny Story, plus a buzzing film scene and a horde of unique movie venues.
Brooklyn | It’s Kind of a Funny Place
Brooklyn is the place that Focus Features’ It’s Kind of a Funny Story calls home, and for a number of reasons. Firstly, the movie was shot in the hip New York borough, in the neighborhoods of Bay Ridge, Crown Heights and Wyckoff Heights as well on the Brooklyn Bridge. Also, Brooklyn is where the highly successful creative team behind the movie, writer-directors Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden, live, while Funny Story funnyman Zach Galifianakis and the writer of the young adult novel that inspired the film, Ned Vizzini, are also former Brooklyn residents.
