Set in 1906 on East 11th Street between Avenue A and Avenue B, "Ragtime" will take you back to the very old school NYC. Both in theme and timeline, it fits right in the middle of "Gangs of New York" and "Once Upon A Time in America."
I've included the trailer here, as well as a behind the scenes vignette. It is surreal to see my block look like this.
The scenes on East 11th Street were filmed August 4-14, 1980.
