Ghostbusters (2016)

Last Updated: Dec 2016

Two paranormal researchers (Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy) join forces with a nuclear engineer (Kate McKinnon) and a subway attendant (Leslie Jones) to fight off a slew of ghosts that have invaded New York City. Eventually, they come face-to-face with an evil entity who can control human beings.

Subway, Broadway (btw West 103rd and 104th Streets) Manhattan.


North Moore Street and Varick Street, Manhattan.


otsoNY Comments: A far cry from the original car and headquarters from the 1984 Ghostbusters film, with the actual location in Boston. Other Boston locations included Oliver Street and Federal Street in the Financial District; Emmanuel Colleges Yawkey Center; and Wang Theatre in the Theatre District.

Ghostbusters HQ, 1 Harrison Avenue, Boston, Massachusett.


otsoNY Comments: For anyone familiar with New York, you might have noticed the bizarre route the Ghostbusters car took from their HQ in Boston, to seamlessly appearing on Chambers Street in lower Manhattan, then moments later what looks like Park Avenue up near 97th Street heading south but is probably back in Boston, only to switch to the East Side of Manhattan with the car heading north on the FDR and finally turning left into East 41st Street near the New York Public Library having driven down 5th Avenue only to end up back in Boston!... and all of this in rush hour traffic.

Chambers Street and Centre Street, Manhattan.


(Near Exit 7) FDR Drive (btw East 15th and 16th Streets) Manhattan.


East 41st Street and 5th Avenue, Manhattan.


otsoNY Comments: The filmmakers built a replica of New York City's Times Square in the old Naval Air Station in South Weymouth, Boston.

Naval Air Station, South Weymouth, Boston.
