It’s not news that significant parts of the 1988 film Moonstruck were filmed in BH and environs. Most everyone knows the house at Cranberry and Willow, (recently sold and currently under renovation) which served as the focal point of the Castorini household, and the focal point of the film, and that the Cammareri bakery was on Henry Street in Cobble Hill.
However, a bunch of locations were either dressed-up, and/or have changed in the 22 years since the movie was made.
If you can forgive (or mute) the hokey music, this YouTube has a nice “then and now” for a lot of the BH locations.
What I find interesting is how you can see the girth of a lot of the trees has increased in the intervening time, and thankfully, Brooklyn Heights still largely looks the same. (thank you, Landmarks Law!)
Speaking of things well preserved, it’s a lesser known fact that Cher, who played the daughter Rose, is in fact, only 15 years younger than Olympia Dukakis, who played her mom.
