Have A Frighteningly Good Time At New Jersey’s New Friday The 13th Museum
New Jersey has a rich cinematic history, starting right at the dawn of the industry. The Garden State was once the film capital of the world, back when Hollywood was just a sleepy farm town filled with orange groves. Fort Lee and West Orange were at the epicenter, with Edison’s Black Maria studio for production and the striking Palisades Cliffs making for fantastic scenery. Over the years, many movies have been filmed in New Jersey, including Goodfellas (Marlboro, Fort Lee, Palisades Interstate Parkway), The Godfather Part III (Atlantic City), When Harry Met Sally (East Rutherford), and War of the Worlds (Bayonne, Howell, Newark, and Elizabeth). One film shot here has had quite a lasting impact…
It’s a perfect day trip during Halloween season, any given Friday the 13th, and all year long! Are you interested in visiting? What’s your favorite Jason film?
