The Last New Yorker

The Last New Yorker Release Date: May 2, 2008

Lifelong friends Lenny Sugarman (Dominic Chianese) and Ruben Liebner (Dick Latessa), both in their 70s, both dyed-in-the-wool New Yorkers, barely recognize the Manhattan of their youth. The city they’ve loved for decades has become a playground for the too-rich; their places, the ones they’ve frequented for years, are now refuges from a changing world they’re increasingly unable to keep up with. When Lenny – a lone schemer all his life – finally gets in over his head, he decides to seek the one thing he’s never had: true love. But to achieve it, he may have to abandon the only place he’s ever known. The movie “The Last New Yorker” is a tale of friendship, love and the world’s greatest city — and how all three keep us young and make us feel alive. The film also stars Kathleen Chalfant and Josh Hamilton, and a host of renowned New York character actors including Joe Grifasi, Ben Hammer, Sylvia Kauders, and Gerry Vichi. Directed by acclaimed NYC filmmaker, documentarian, and photographer Harvey Wang.
