The scene in the kitschy Bamboo Lounge in which Tommy does his scary “funny guy” turn is filmed at the Hawaii Kai restaurant, which was located 49th Street at Broadway.

The scenes of Karen’s first date with Hill are filmed at Salerno’s Restaurant. Salerno’s Restaurant is a beautiful restaurant located at 11711 Hillside Avenue at Myrtle Avenue, Richmond Hill, Queens. The captivating restaurants can be seen in many other movies like ‘Awake’, etc.

Karen’s dating scenes with Hill are also filmed in Copacabana Nightclub, which was located at 10 East 60th Street at Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.

The scene in which Hill relaxes with Karen after his first big airport job was shot in the posh beach club, which is located at 2041 Park Street in Atlantic Beach on Long Island.

One of the interesting aspects of this movie is the selection of various restaurants to shoot various scenes of the movie.

If you want to visit the shopping mall where the scene of Goodfellas in which Hill makes a phone call about being followed was filmed, you have to go to Richmond Avenue, Staten Island because this mall is located on Richmond Avenue. The Palisades Interstate Parkway is another place where the film is shot. It is a long highway with limited-access in the states of New Jersey and New York.
