So the best part of my trip to NYC was that I got to see all the real-life sites of the Ghostbusters movie. We watch that movie at least once a month, so as excited as I was, it was even more essential that I catalogue these places for the kiddos back home.
The first building, which I found quite by accident, was the church next to Dana’s apartment building. You know, the one that gets squooshed by the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man?
Next, as I wandered through Central Park, I managed to find the apartment building itself!
A few days later, I found the library.
And the piece de resistance:
Funny story about the firehouse. I dragged my dad and friend on the subway all the way uptown to find this firehouse. I had the address and I was fairly sure we could get to it from the subway stop. But when we came up the stairs from underground, we stood around for a few minutes, struggling to get our bearings. My map wasn’t quite good enough. Then suddenly – there it was! It was literally across the street from the subway station. Too bad the garbage truck blocked our view, but it was still a great victory and a great way to finish off my Ghostbusters tour.
Next time, I’ll try to find Slimer.
