Welcome to Union County!

Why film in Union County?


Union County is a short distance from all five boroughs of New York City, and is located between two of the nation’s premium media markets, Metro New York and Philadelphia.

Variety of Settings

The 21 municipalities of Union County represent a wide range of time periods and settings, including carefully preserved historical sites dating back to the Colonial era. Bustling cities, lush suburbs, and rugged wildlife habitats are all part of the mosaic of life in Union County.


Our County and local governments have gained a body of experience in working with film and television productions through the years, and the Advisory Board brings additional knowledge in location scouting, law enforcement, government, and local business.
