The Ghostbuster's Building
Yes, we are talking about the movie with Bill Murry, Sigourney Weaver, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson! The front doors for the "haunted" apartment building "Central Park West" were actually on a building about two or three blocks up from this one - but these towers were the scene for the battle with Gozer, the creature that was trying to take over the world (or whatever he/she/it was trying to do!)
We did see the other building too, and it's a neat art deco building, but they were working on it, and there was scaffolding all over the front sidewalk... cool building, though! We also walked past the church crushed by the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man, and the Tavern on the Green, where Rick Moranis is turned into a "dog"... they all happen to be in the same basic neighborhood, honest, we didn't really go looking for them! Well, not really... heh...
There is an actual New York City walking tour for the Ghostbusters sites. Patricia found it in her guidebook. I was kind of amused. I was more amused, though, when I found this web site for the walking tour! Ok, so, I'm easily amused... LOL
During our wandering we actually passed by a LOT of places we recognized from various movies. The big SilverCup sign, where the final battle in the movie "Highlander" was fought, and the "three smokestacks" that Mel Gibson keeps staring at all through "Conspiracy Theory", and the "alien spacecraft" from "Men In Black", were a few. We now watch television and yell "Hey were were there!!" and laugh... because we said, when we were wandering about that day, that we knew we'd end up doing that!! LOL
Oh, hey, are you interested in making Ghostbuster's type slime?? Here's the recipe, from the grand-daddy of all Ghostbuster's sites.
WARNING: KEEP SLIME AWAY FROM
SMALL CHILDREN, TOASTERS, AND VERY LARGE NATIONAL MONUMENTS!
Well, that's all folks! We wandered Central Park, but you've already seen those pictures, and we went to the zoo, and took a carriage ride with lovely Irishman named Michael Quinn, but I ran out of film by then, so, lucky you, the "slideshow" is now over!
Hey, write and say
"Hi" if you get a chance, ok?
