NYC is undoubtedly one of the most iconic cities in the world. Show someone from a different country a picture of the Empire State Building or the Brooklyn Bridge, and chances are they'll know you're talking about New York. From Aug. 24-28, the Central Park Conservancy Film Festival will be celebrating "Iconic New York" in another NYC icon, Central Park.

The eighth annual Central Park Conservancy Film Festival, presented by Bloomberg, will be held north of Sheep Meadow and five films will be shown; all featuring NYC icons.

Tues., Aug. 24: Fame
Wed., Aug. 25: The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3
Thurs., Aug. 26: Saturday Night Fever
Fri., Aug. 27: King Kong
Sat., Aug. 28: Manhattan

The screenings begin at 8:00 pm and are free to the public, but if you want a good spot, head over at 6:30 pm when gates open. Don't forget to bring a picnic so you can munch on some sandwiches as you watch John Travolta rip the dance floor.
