The Design Observer Group blog has a post today about photographer Christopher Moloney, who tracks down the backgrounds of scenes from famous films and lines them up with their present day location. There are a ton across New York and elsewhere, but naturally, I gravitated to the picture above of Woody Allen and Diane Keaton from Annie Hall.

The background looks the same, so much has happened. Y’know?
