Nick Carr of Scouting NY recently tracked down many of the New York City area filming locations from Francis Ford Coppola’s 1971 classic The Godfather. Many of the locations have changed drastically over the intervening years but as Carr discovered, some of the locations–such as the Corleone mansion in Staten Island–looks much the same.
