I was there when they filmed it
24 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was filmed in Corona, Queens, NY on 38th Avenue just off 108th street when I was a kid living with my Grandma. The house across the street is where most of the indoor scenes were done and a bunch of us kids got to be extras. Pretty cool. But very sad movie. Loved it.

Talia Shire and Burt Young were great. Sly came by our street to visit. I remember about a year before they started filming two guys showed up and asked how we'd like to have a movie made on our street.

We didn't believe them until the crews started rolling in and they used the back pantry and yard of my Grandma's house to store soda, food and stuff.
