The film industry has long regarded NYC as a great backdrop for a diverse spectrum of films and TV shows, but recently Hollywood blockbusters and even independent productions are branching out into our favorite borough to set the scene for their stories.
Broadway Stages opened its first site in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and since has opened large production studios in Astoria and, most recently, in Glendale, where shows like “Civil”, “The Get Go” and “Billions” are presently on location. It’s no surprise that the diverse backdrop of Queens is repeatedly selected for cinema and smaller screens given its urban streetscapes, incredible skylines and classic American neighborhoods—remember “All In the Family”?
However, Queens is also home to lush suburban neighborhoods like Forest Hills Gardens, and the wilds of Forest Park. Most recently a large center hall colonial home in Forest Hills Gardens was chosen as the perfect setting for an upcoming independent film.
The tale recounts the classic and heartbreaking story of a homeless U.S. veteran who is taken in by a loving family and becomes one of them. Filming took place on a quiet street nestled in the heart of Forest Hills Gardens, and for ten days, Forest Hills became NYC’s Beverly Hills.
Not all dreams are limited to the silver screen, however, and this quintessential American home is now on the market for $2,685,000. With an abundance of natural light, spacious rooms and film set-worthy charm, this could be the dream home you’ve been seeking. Terrace Sotheby’s International Realty will be hosting an Open House for prospective buyers there this upcoming Sunday June 12th from 12—2 p.m. Click here for more details.
