A green road sign that says Amityville Like our towns broad history, SERVPRO of Amityville / Lindenhurst has a broad variety of ways to assist a property after water damage.

Helping Amityville business owners handle stormwater mitigation

Amityville needs no introduction – the name has become synonymous with the novel, The Amityville Horror, and the movie of the same name. The book's author, Jay Anson, maintains that it was based on the Lutz family's true story and the supernatural hauntings that plagued them in their village home.

Whether you believe the story or not, there is no doubt that the Lutz's former home is a popular tourist destination! The house is an imposing Dutch Colonial style, with five bedrooms and its own boathouse just off Long Island Sound. Many people do not realize that the home in Amityville is not the one from the famous horror movie. That home is in New Jersey – filmmakers had to go there because Amityville authorities would not allow them to film the actual house.

The house has attracted so much tourist interest that its former owners, James, and Barbara Cromarty, changed its address from 112 Ocean Avenue to 108 Ocean Avenue in the hope of discouraging the hordes of visitors who came to the village wanting to see the house. You can, of course, still view the house from the outside today, but you are unlikely to find any ghosts – several people have owned it since the Lutz's lived there, and all reported no paranormal activity.
