Turns out the movie industry really loves Central Park in New York City because a new study reveals that the area is the most-used filming location in the entire world!
The study was conducted by NetCredit and found that not only is Central Park the US's most popular filming location, but with 532 different film credits, it's also the most-used location in the world.
A few of the movies that have filmed there include: Elf, Home Alone 2: Lost In New York, The Avengers, and When Harry Met Sally among hundreds of other movies.
