New York, New York, is a city so nice they named it twice, and so memorable that Hollywood sci-fi filmmakers can't resist destroying it over and over and over again, as you can see in this awesome video from Goodie Bag.

The montage, set to George Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue," features destruction by aliens, giant creatures, a big gorilla, solar flares, massive floods, freezing and a subway-eating monster.

Can you pick out all the movies in the clip? (Don't watch the credits: That's cheating.)
