Oh, my love, my darling I've hungered for your touch.
Sam (Patrick Swayze) and Molly (Demi Moore) get attacked on a dark street in New York City. Sam is killed but lives on as a ghost. He tries desperately to let Molly know he is still around and enlists the help of psychic Oda Mae Brown (Whoopi Goldberg) to help him. This is the premise of the aptly named movie, Ghost. Surprisingly Ghost was directed by Jerry Zucker who is better known for his work on comedies like Airplane! or the Naked Gun movies.
Sam & Molly are attacked on Crosby Street in New York City not far from where we once enjoyed tea at the Crosby Street Hotel. When two men finally come to help Sam & Molly we are quite certain that they come running from the vacant lot where the hotel was built. The photo above is of the rear entrance to the hotel on Lafayette Street.
In the movie, Sam & Molly walk down Crosby Street and notice a man lurking in the shadows. We find out later that the man's name is Willie. Willie quickly pulls a gun on Sam and as the two struggle the gun goes off.
We see Willie run off down the street and then see Sam run after him. Sam turns back to Molly and is shocked by what he sees.
Lying in the street is Sam with a gunshot wound and Molly calling for help. Sam is shocked and literally beside himself. They would have been on the coblestone street somewhere near this mysteriously yellow puddle. Sam soon realizes he is now a ghost.
Sam & Molly's apartment is only about 3 blocks from where Sam was killed. It is here at 102 Prince Street that Sam and Oda Mae Brown come to try and convince Molly that Sam is still around and watching out for her.
Their apartment is the fourth from the top. The second window from the left is where the workers can be seen trying to pull a statue of Mary up to the apartment.
New York City is such a popular movie location that no matter where you go, you are probably walking through the ghosts of a movie shoot from the past.
