Someone came to this blog after doing a google search for"where was the toll booth from the godfather filmed". I see Wikipedia has it filmed at the Meadowbrook Toll Plaza, but according to other sources it was filmed in an abandoned runway at Mitchel Field. Mitchel Field is correct, because if you watch closely as Sonny is driving around the bend to the toll booth, you can see the antenna of Telecare, the Diocese of Rockville Centre's television station, located on the grounds of what is now Kellenberg High School. This is right across from the former Mitchell Field. Long Island is a good place to film mobster's deaths -
Bobby Bacala's death in the "Blue Comet"episode of the Soprano's was filmed in Trainworld in Lynbrook. Trainworld is the go to place for model trains of all types, as Bobby obviously knew.

Now that I have solved that mystery of where Sonny was shot, how about someone answering how Sonny could get shot up by men from all different angles, but the fake toll booth collector ducks below the window and doesn't get hit?
