I want to do a little pre-NYC trip celebration with my friend the day before our trip. What are some awesome movies to rent that really get you in that "New York state of mind"?

There are lots of movies that feature New York locations. Here are some suggestions:

On The Town
Annie Hall
Manhattan
Manhattan Murder Mystery (much of Woody Allen, actually)
West Side Story
Breakfast at Tiffany's
Fame
Taxi Driver
Midnight Cowboy
Saturday Night Fever
Little Manhattan
Serendipity
Sidewalks of New York
Rent (shot mostly in California but set in NY)
The Producers
Unfaithful
You've Got Mail
When Harry Met Sally
Big

Hope that helps!

You forgot my favorite....Working Girl!

Last June when on the boat to Ellis Island, we passed the Staten Island ferry and I could hear that great Carly Simon theme song that opens the movie with the shot of the ferry...(and alas...the twin towers in the background)

Of course, Harrison Ford is very scenic also...

The Squid and the Whale and Igby Goes Down both show some great NYC locations as well.
