City en Scène #4

Ghostbusters (1984)
-- 4 North Moore St --

As a kid of the 1980s so much of my youth was built on movies set in New York, a booming time for Big City Representation... something I felt cooler about before the worst aspect of that "Greed Is Good" NYC mentality became our current nightmare president slash tormentor. Sigh. Anyway I'd be remiss doing this series, where I'm celebrating my 20th year of surviving this place, if I didn't mention Ivan Reitman's formative flick Ghostbusters at some point. Hell I might end up having to mention it more than once when it comes down to it. An excellent place to start though is with that firehouse the dudes end up buying in Tribeca...

... since it's literally a five minute walk from where I sit every day typing this blog -- where I sit right this second! -- a fact that would've blown my baby brain apart if you'd have shared that info with me as I sat there sipping Ecto Cooler watching The Real Ghostbusters cartoon every Saturday morning. I've been slimed... with awesomeness!
