Did anyone revisit the 1990 movie locations?

Does anyone know if there's a site that has fanmade pictures of the North Carolina locations used in Barron's film and how they look now?

For those who are interested, here are some similar sites featuring revisited movie locations:

Karate Kid: http://www.fast-rewind.com/kkid/index.html

The Goonies: http://www.thegoonies.org/Locations.htm

First Blood: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lc7pMuaku1o

cheer-i-oh,

Cliff

I've been to the house once on a family trip about 10 years ago. Didn't go inside, or even for that matter walk on the property, but I took a picture. Can't find it anywhere though.

Unfortunately, I don't. I'm kind of disappointed with myself, seeing as how I live in North Carolina.

Cool!
Too bad you can't find that picture anymore...

You LIVE in North Carolina?!
Take your bike and go take pictures of the locations right now!

Only kidding... It's good for morale

Seriously...
I wonder how much of the movie was filmed in North Carolina... I guess it wasn't just the farm house, and that the streets of North Carolina stood in for a lot of the New York scenes...

Does anyone have any information on this?
Or better yet, does anyone have any pictures?

Dang it, I wish I didn't live so far away. I'd go there myself

BUMP FROM SHELL!!!

Apart from the New York location where Raph comes out of the cinema, ( http://forums.thetechnodrome.com/showthread.php?t=31828 ) has anyone visited any other movie one locations in the last five years since this thread was started?

Any North Carolina people maybe?

I'm really curious to know what happened with some of the locations after more then twenty years...
Especially with the farmhouse... Does anyone know if it still exists?

About two years ago my sister lived in NYC and right next to the subway station they did the fight in, so I got to see that, but I never took any pictures.

Cool!

Does anyone know the name of the station?
If I'm not mistaken it has been used for other movies as well. It might be the typical subway station the city of New York lets movie crews film in.
Wasn't it used in 'Crocodile' Dundee? I should check...

Actually, is anyone out here from Wilmington, NC?
If you are, could you check if that farmhouse is still standing and report back? I'm dying to know...

For the longest time I thought April's antique store was a real location until I learned it was filmed on the backlot of the Screen Gems Studios in Wilmington.

Another location for the 1990 movie was at the Ideal Cement Factory in Wilmington, NC. It was an abandoned factory that I think they used for the foot hideout scenes? Interestingly enough, the cement factory was also where most of Super Mario Bros (1993) was filmed, and was used for all of the Dinohattan scenes.

Does anyone have any information on the current status of the farmhouse by now?

I still wonder what happened to it...

I have visited on a couple weekends. I live about 30 minutes away.
Edit: not the farmhouse.
And, I know of a guy on YouTube who visited some of the locations of this, Ghostbusters, and Back To The Future.

Where is that farm at all? Is it visible on Google Eath perhaps?

I'm wondering the same thing. Didn't they film a lot of this in North Carolina? Maybe it's somewhere in that state.

From what I've read, the tmnt stuff was on a set that has since been torn down... but I could be wrong since it doesn't specifically say the barn is part of that...

Unless I'm gravely mistaken, the O'Neil farm was an actual existing house near Wilmington, not a constructed set...

Of course, what often happens with movie locations is that the location scout (along with the director of course) select a vacant building they can alter, dress and fill with their cumbersome gear to their heart's desire without having to worry about the occupants. After the movie wraps, it isn't uncommon that such buildings are torn down.
For example (if I remember correctly) the Goonies house in Astoria, Oregon was vacant when the movie was shot there. (Luckily it wasn't torn down afterwards.)

What I'm trying to say is- maybe the reason we can't find a trace of the house is that it simply didn't survive the start of the nineties.

Sure hope I'm wrong.
