And no trip would be complete without a visit to the home of the Ghostbusters: That famous firehouse. In reality it houses Hook and Ladder Company #8, who were all pretty friendly and didn't mind us taking a look around, although they did turn down my request to have a slide down the pole.
But, they did point out a few photos of the cast they had displayed on one wall, including pictures of the Ecto 1, taken during filming. Plus, they had on display the sign they were given from the filming of Ghostbusters II.
There was one other item of interest we found, too. It seems the firehouse crew has a collection of disfigured clocks and phones they've recovered from various conflagrations. Sure, it has nothing to do with Ghostbusters, but it's still pretty cool.
Incidentally, while admiring the display of molten telephony, we ran into the chief. Upon asking him about the filming of Ghostbusters and where we might find other related locations, he confessed he didn't know much, as he wasn't working here at the time.
He did share with us however, in his thick Brooklyn accent, that, "Down the street you can find the diner where that lottery movie was filmed. Where that cop gives the waitress a lottery ticket for a tip. The one with that girl. You know, the Puerto Rican with the tits."
I didn't even know Rosie Perez was in that movie.
