Shortly after I moved to Hoboken, NJ, I was walking past a park that looked vaguely familiar. I stood there for a while, until it came to me, that a scene from "On the Waterfront" was shot there. It is where Karl Malden is talking to Eva Marie Saint, as they look toward the shipyard.

My company was located in northern New Jersey, and we had a summer picnic in the same park where "Big" shot the carnival scene with the Zoltar machine. The scenes with Tom Hanks bicycling back to the carnival the next day were also shot in the area. The place is Palisades Park near the George Washington Bridge, with the specific park with the carnival is Ross Dock Picnic area.

Living for a while in the New York City area, there are tons of other locations that are used in TV and movies.
