Film Locations

Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden’s 83-acre campus boasts a multitude of spaces for all types of film and photo projects. It has been used as everything from a college campus to a park, homes and apartments to a hospital, an opera house to a dance hall.

We’ve been proud to work with production teams from Law & Order SVU, Fosse/Verdon, Wonder Wheel, Gotham, God Friended Me, Madame Secretary, Life Itself, and Lady Gaga, among many others. For inquiries and bookings, contact Business Manager Jenny Kelly at or 718-425-3516.

Creative minds can find opportunities to shoot in every nook and cranny of the campus. The buildings represent the changing architectural styles of the 19th and 20th centuries. The first buildings were built in the Greek Revival style. Others demonstrate marked Beaux Arts, Renaissance Revival, Second Empire and Italianate styles with high Victorian decorative components. Many of the indoor spaces are unfurnished, providing a blank canvas for a set. Expansive outdoor spaces provide a unique setting as the seasons change.
