We are happy to report that another batch of engraved bricks was recently put into place in Heritage Park. All those bricks ordered prior to April 21 are now in. Thanks once again to Frank Capogna for his continued support.
Picture this: Rudolph Valentino burning up the screen, wearing gaucho chaps and dancing the tango in one of his last films, A Sainted Devil (1924) . . . filmed in Astoria and nearby Farmingdale. The hilarious Marx Brothers in one of their first films, Animal Crackers (1930), set at the fictional mansion of Mrs. Rittenhouse . . . "one of the showplaces of Long Island." The debonair Cary Grant, kidnapped at the start of North by Northwest (1959) and driven out to the Phipps Estate in Old Westbury, a grand mansion that Alfred Hitchcock's art director Robert Boyle said "fitted us perfectly." Ben Stiller, squirming under Robert DeNiro's watchful eye in Meet the Parents (2000) . . . a movie shot mainly around the Village of Oyster Bay.
