Title: The Miracle on 34th Street house today 


Here's a picture of the house in 2007 from the Nassau County Assessors website.

It's located at 24 Derby Road in Port Washington, New York. More later.

I always wondered where on Long Island that house was and what happened to it. Now if we could only find out if that cane is still in the corner!


 
Stop, Uncle Fred! Stop!!

You beat me to it Chip.  I was going to say "Stop, Uncle Fred! Stop!"  I wonder if the rope swing is still in the back yard lol.

Though I don't have my movie to refer too as it is packed away for the move, this coming Wednesday, I thought the movie mentioned that the house was in Great Neck, or am I thinking of the scene where Kris and Fred were talking before they went to bed when Kris was hinting about a house after Susan showed him the picture of the house she wanted for Christmas.  Or was the Nursing Home in the movie in Great Neck?

Susan,

In the movie, the nursing home (Brooks' Memorial Home For The Aged) was located at 126 Maplewood Drive in Great Neck, and the location that Fred was thinking of for a house (a Cape Cod model) was Manhasset.

Thanks Chip,

After I did my last post, I then thought I might be thinking of Moose Moran's Gambling Casino/The Nellie Thursday Home from "The Lemon-Drop Kid" But thinking about it now, I believe that was in Nyack.

Great picture!  Great work in tracking down the house!!!!!  I actually tracked the house down in 2007 took some digital shots that I shared with people at Macy's!   Many people knew about the house in Port Washington area for years and there is a website tat mentions it.  I tracked it down by reading Maureen O'Hara's autobigraphy, I got to meet her and she is a grand lady and a true legend!  In her book she tells the story that the day of the filming it was very cold, the cameras were giving them trouble due to the cold and a lady across the street came over and offered them shelter in her home and some nice hot coffee till the cameras were ready again.   The lady was Vaughn Meile, she stayed friend with Ms O'Hara over the years, Ms Meile as of 2007 was living in California and told me when I contacted her where the house was located!

It's soooo cool to see this house now. I always wondered what happened to it, and would have to give some serious thought as to what I would give just to walk in the front door and stand by the fire place!!

Thanks much, Chip. I'm really enjoying this web site--thank you also for your efforts. I'm looking forward to seeing "the yule log" on WGN America this Christmas.
