Port Washington, New York
Perhaps no other house in this slideshow played such a vital role in the plot as this one. This is the very house that caused a young Natalie Wood in the original “Miracle on 34th Street” to cry out, “Stop, Uncle Fred, stop!” in one of the final scenes of the classic film. While on a drive with Fred and her mother Doris, little Susan Walker spotted the house of her dreams — a simple Cape Cod on a small hill that was for sale. From there the movie was one running and squealing little girl — and Kris Kringle’s telltale cane propped by the fireplace — away from the grownups pretty much deciding to buy the house, leading to a very happy ending.
The exterior of the charming Cape Cod on Long Island is nearly the same 65 years later, except for the addition of a dormer window.
