One film of note for the average Pittsburgher is <a href="http://www.pghcitypaper.com/pittsburgh/a-new-york-heartbeat/Content?oid=1670232">A New York Heartbeat</a>. Pittsburgh City Paper film critic, Al Hoff says movie makers attempted to make Pittsburgh look like Brooklyn in the 1950s. When Hoff asked the film creator why the film was shot in Pittsburgh, she was told it's because of the city’s “gritty alleys, rusty bridges and lack of contemporary graffiti.” Hoff describes the film as a small-scale movie, with a low budget feel, but not bad if you’re looking for an off-beat love story and views of Pittsburgh.
