15. Joel’s Parents’ House in Forest Hills
The Maisels and Weissmans come together for Thanksgiving Dinner at Shirley and Moishe’s (Joel’s parents) house in Forest Hills. The large house is located off Ascan Avenue in the historic Queens neighborhood. At dinner, Abe and Rose announce that they’re going on a trip, while Shirley and Moishe have some more unsettling news to share.
The picturesque houses of Forest Hills have appeared on screen in a handful of well-known productions. Alfred Hitchcock’s 1951 film “Strangers On A Train” features the West Side Tennis Club in a pivotal scene and more recent shows such as Boardwalk Empire, Elementary, and Blue Bloods, have been filmed there.
