The fascinating story behind New York City’s only remaining backlot movie studio

While we all know Hollywood to be the official home of the film industry, some of the most memorable movies actually take place in New York City.

And while some of these films are produced in Hollywood — on movie sets imitating New York apartment stoops — only one outdoor studio back lot is currently operating in the five boroughs, helping bring to life New York City-centric stories as well as countless others.

The Kaufman Astoria Studios are located in the Astoria neighborhood of Queens, about a 20-minute subway ride from Times Square, and they're one of the biggest and most complex production centers along the East Coast.
