Kevin Smith’s pan-sexual love story is set, like his earlier Clerks and Mallrats, on the western tip of the New Jersey coast, around Red Bank, Leonardo and Asbury Park, with just a glimpse of Manhattan.
The apartment of Holden and Banky (Ben Affleck and Jason Lee) is 30 Broad Street, Red Bank, above Jack’s Music Shop. Conveniently, it’s almost directly opposite Kevin Smith’s store, Jay And Silent Bob’s Secret Stash, 35 Broad Street. Stop by and check out the Chasing Amy merchandise.
The park, where they open up to each other, is Victory Park, River Road, in Rumson out on the westernmost tip.
Holden grills Alyssa during the ice hockey match at Ocean Ice Palace, 197 Chambersbridge Road, in Brick.
Just west of Leonardo is Belford, where Jay and Silent Bob put in their trademark appearance at the New Marina Diner, which is now the Kings Arms II Diner, 553 New Jersey 36 at East Road.
