Long Island Famous Film Sites

Sometimes called Hollywood East, Long Island’s connection to film history dates to the silent cinema when opulent parties and renowned mansions attracted international stars such as Charlie Chaplin. If you haven’t visited our mansions or romantic beaches in person, you’ve probably seen them on the big screen! From Martin Scorsese’s cinematic classics to Adam Sandler’s laugh fests, Long Island has served as the backdrop for hundreds of celebrated films and TV shows.
