Movie scenes filmed at Palisades Interstate Park / New Jersey Section (including Ross Dock)
- In 1988, Tom Hanks became Big at a carnival staged by director Penny Marshall at Ross Dock, complete with Ferris wheel, candy stands—and a sinister looking wishing machine.
- In a pair of pivotal scenes, Martin Scorsese had three of his GoodFellas, Ray Liotta, Robert DeNiro, and Joe Pesci, bury a body—then ghoulishly dig it up later—in the woods near State Line Lookout (1990).
