For opening credits, Ephron wanted an animated version of Broadway's Boogie-Woogie, a representation of New York City by Piet Mondrian. When animator Mirko Ilic and his staff animated Mondrian's painting, Ephron wanted something more "realistic or romantic" so they photographed all of the buildings along Broadway on the Upper West Side, from 72nd Street to the brownstone where the film begins, as a guide for the computer graphic animation.

Several scenes were originally scripted and partly filmed but not included in the final cut:
A scene in which Kathleen gets involved with two garbagemen and first gets tongue-tied.
Extended scenes referring to the roof-top murderer including a love affair with George.
A scene with Kathleen and Christina talking about falling in love.
Extended scenes that characterize Patricia: a presentation of an author (the woman in the later elevator scene)
Extended scenes that characterize Frank: he meets an famous author whom he adores.
Scenes on Kathleen's and Joe's childhood.
A scene in which Joe explains Annabel why the Shop Around the Corner had to close.
This movie was so much better than I expected, which was a simple romantic comedy with predictable "pass each other in the street" scenarios throughout. I was pleasantly surprised to find a love story that touched my heart. Kathleen's vulnerability and pride in her mother made me cry and Joe's sensitivity and devious behavior were so very sweet.
I didn't think that Tom Hanks & Meg Ryan could pull off a romance better than they did in Sleepless In Seattle but I am happy to be mistaken.
