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.

Tom's Restaurant (Seinfeld)

I am sitting in the morning at the diner on the corner

Location: New York, New York, USA
Address: 2880 Broadway
Date: Dec 2008
Website: www.tomsrestaurant.net

Tom's Restaurant is best known as Monk's Cafe from Seinfeld.  It is just used for exterior shots so don't expect the inside to look like it does on TV.  They are also careful to never film the TOM'S part of the sign that surrounds the building.  We would expect that if the southbound facing side said more than just  RESTAURANT that it would never have become part of the show.   Fortunately it did, and now it is instantly recognizable to Seinfeld fans from around the world.

Seinfeld Restaurant

The restaurant is also the inspiration for Suzanne Vega's popular "Tom's Diner" song.  When in Manhattan pop by for a bite, or just stand across the street and exchange a few Seinfeld-isms with your friends.
