101 movies filmed in Westchester

It didn't take long for Hollywood to find the Hudson Valley fit for film. And once a 1918 "Tarzan" film set up the lights, cameras and action in Croton, cinematic magic would continue to find its way to Westchester County.

In alphabetical order, here are 101 of the critical darlings, big blockbusters and forgotten flicks to find cinematic glory in Westchester County since 1981.
