Ghostbusters 2 (1989)

Sidelined for five years since their spectacular save (an near destruction) of New York City, the superstars of the supernatural spring back into action when the infant son of single-mother Dana Barrett becomes the target of a powerful demonic force. Reunited with the no-nonsense Zeddemore, nerdy near-sighted Louis and their ever-industrious secretary Janine, the heroes of the hereafter must put a stop to an enormous underground river of slime ready to rot the roots of the entire Big Apple. Now, if your hometown was on the verge of being sucked down into the 10th level of Hell, who else would you call?


Columbus Avenue and West 89th Street, Manhattan.
   

otsoNY Comments: The opening scene where the Ectomobile races through Manhattan is full of errors in geography. The vehicle is first seen on Columbus Avenue passing West 89th Street, and then moments later in a completely different part of town only to be back on Columbus Avenue seconds later and turning left into West 88th Street where the vehicle comes to halt outside a townhouse, but not as you might think on West 88th Street, but in fact at number 420 East 78th Street and 1st Avenue.
