The unknown, yet famous, City Island.
Numerous films, television shows, and commercials have been filmed on City Island. Films include Butterfield 8 starring Elizabeth Taylor; Long Day’s Journey Into Night, with Katharine Hepburn); Awakenings, with Robert De Niro and Robin Williams; Love Is All There Is, with Angelina Jolie; and A Bronx Tale, again with De Niro. Michael Douglas was here for Don’t Say a Word and Wes Anderson’s The Royal Tenenbaums was filmed at Delmours Point.
This clip is part of a series of 1-minute video vignettes we shot in the Bronx sponsored by a grant from the New York City Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME) and produced by students and faculty at Lehman College.
