The Marx family lived at this home on what is now 89th Avenue and 134th Street (87-48 134th Street) during the 1920's. The boys were known for such comic film classics as Coconuts, Horse Feathers, A Night at the Opera, and A Day at the Races. The house now bears a plaque donated by the Native New Yorkers' Historical Association. This house is also featured during the East Richmond Hill Walking Tour sponsored by the Richmond Hill Historical Society.
