“The estate we filmed at was going up for sale, and the main house (that Tom Hanks and Shelley Long were supposedly moving into) was going to be demolished.”

“The interiors of the house were filmed at Kaufman Astoria Studios in Astoria, Queens (geographically still Long Island).”

“We also shot a brief night scene for The Money Pit at a small LIRR station near the house location.”
