Hook & Ladder 8 (Ghostbusters)

Turning off these machines would be extremely hazardous.

Location: New York, New York, USA
Address: 14 North Moore Street
Date: Sept 2013

Who ya gonna call?
Well, if you are in Manhattan near North Moore and Varick St. you could save the phone call and just drop by to visit the Ghostbusters.  In reality if you had to call 911 you would probably get a visit from the real residents of this location, the firefighters of Hook and Ladder 8.
In the Ghostbusters movie this was their headquarters.  It was also where they contained all of their captured spooks and spirits.  That is until they were ordered to shut down the containment unit and everything was released through the roof of the building and back out into the streets.  "I believe it's magic."
We visited this location to feel a bit of that movie magic, but we were cautious as we headed back down into the subway at nearby Franklin St. station.

55 Central Park West (Ghostbusters)

Okay. Who brought the dog?

Location: New York, New York, USA
Address: 55 Central Park West
Date: Sept 2007

If there's something strange in your neighbourhood, then you just might live near 66th and Central Park West in Manhattan.  This is where the apartments of Dana Barrett and Louis Tully (The Gatekeeper and The Keymaster) are located.  Fans of the Ghostbusters movie should be able to recognize the distinctive awning over the front entrance.

Nobody steps on a church in my town.

There was no sign of any paranormal activity on the rooftop while we were there, but we did notice the church next door which was stepped on by the Stay Puft marshmallow man.  We also noticed that when Louis Tully (Rick Moranis) runs across the street and hops the wall into Central Park he is very close to his next destination.

Nice doogy, cute little pooch, maybe I got a milkbone.

One block up at 67th is the Tavern on the Green restaurant.  We did enjoy a nice dinner and afterwards we went outside and took a few pictures through the window.  The party inside seemed to pay us no mind.  We wonder if they would have cared if we were being attacked by a demonic gargoyle dog.
