While "The Wolf Of Wall Street" does indeed find Martin Scorsese once again telling a story in the city he's long been associated with—New York City—given that it takes place mostly in offices, mansions and yachts, we wouldn't necessarily call it a quintessential NYC movie by the director. But his body of work offers more than enough opportunity to view the Big Apple through Marty's lens, and this visual love letter is a nice journey through that part of his filmography.

While "The Wolf Of Wall Street" does indeed find Martin Scorsese once again telling a story in the city he's long been associated with—New York City—given that it takes place mostly in offices, mansions and yachts, we wouldn't necessarily call it a quintessential NYC movie by the director. But his body of work offers more than enough opportunity to view the Big Apple through Marty's lens, and this visual love letter is a nice journey through that part of his filmography.

Edited by Robert Kolodny, and comprised of clips from 14 of Scorsese's pictures (yep, including "The Wolf Of Wall Street"), the three-minute video is a nice look at the characters, settings and inspiration that the director has found in the city he grew up in and still loves to this day. It's well worth a quick look, so click below. [via Keyframe Daily]
