Eighties Movie Locations That Really Exist, Movies Beginning with F

This is a list of places that are in movies, but have a real life counterpart. Please try and be as specific as possible in describing where something is and when it appears in a movie. I don't want just city names where filming took place so much as I want landmark type buildings.

The hospital at the end Brian Brown's character escapes from at the end is a real hospital. Or at least it was. It's St. Mary's Hospital in Orange,NJ. Since filming ended it has become a nursing home. When they were filming it though the staff had a very hard time trying to keep it all under wraps, patients kept going to the windows to try to see what the commotion and the lights were all about and they had to do a few takes because of it.

Some artistic licence was used with it though - other filming for those scenes - Goss Moor close by the A30 road from Bodmin. 2.

This movie had a lot of its scenes filmed at a beach club called The Silver Gull in Breezy Point, Queens, NY. They also shot the police scene in the local precinct on East 93 St.
The entire movie is set and filmed in Pittsburgh, PA. The dance school that Alex auditions for is set at the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh.

This film was shot in and around Cincinatti Ohio, and many of the locations were used insted of building sets. The main one off the top of my head is the restaurant they eat in. It is not too far from the college campus.
Friday The 13Th parts 1 & 2 were filmed in, and only in Blairstown New Jersey. A small town, with a population of 5,750 people, that's main claim to fame is a Prep School Blair Academy. Blair Academy is a "wrestling factory" has won 19 Nationap Prep Wrestling Championships and 81 Individual National Prep Champions since 1982. Another cool fact about Blairstown is that it has one of the last one - lane bridge's in the Northeast. Besides Blair Academy, Blairstown it is one of those one horse towns that you only see American cars ( I swear). In the movie you see the Blairstown Diner, which was also used in many commercials for some reason it has that perfect American feel to it. Blairstown sits right near the boarder of Pennsylvania covering the northern slope of the Kittatinny Mountains, the higheest mountains in NJ and is a 30 minute drive from the Poconos. Above it said it is filmed in Hope but Hope is the town next to Blairstown.
Friday The 13th Part 3
Camp Nobebosco--Scout Camp in Blairstown, NJ. Camped there as a Scout. Made for some good campfire stories.
All locations were filmed in Blairstown, New Jersey, and Camp NoBeBoSco, New Jersey.
From what I understand in the start of the movie when they are driving in the jeep that road is a road that runs past Cranberry park in Norwalk CT.
Friday the 13th was not filmed in Norwalk CT but it was filmed in either Stanhope or Hope, NJ as it says on a truck in the movie and on a sign at an entrance to a cemetary I believe.
Ft. Knox, Kentucky was used to film some of the basic training scenes for the film. The base still has alot of the old barracks, most are boarded up.
The town of Redbud, for the most part, is actually Townshend, Vermont. The gazebo near the church was built for the movie and then later given to the town as a gift.
