The Ghostbusters Tour of New York – New York City Video

The Ghostbusters Tour of New York

This was all shot on Tuesday, May 1, between 10:30 am and 5 pm. Aside from being one of the most perfect movies ever made, GHOSTBUSTERS is one of the great New York films. Here’s a handy guide to visiting every shooting location (in chronological order) in a single day, complete with reenactments of the scenes. A huge thanks to JT Maple for the amazing music. Follow him on Twitter. @jtmaple Watch JT’s full performance of the Ghostbusters theme: Camera operators: Max Rouzier, Andrew James Poole, Jacob Torpey After a break due to us moving to NYC, we’re back at Bleeding Cool.

    One of the best music videos ever.

  16. patrickhwillems says:

    Damn drug charges! Get them dropped!

  17. patrickhwillems says:

    Actually, the hotel was all shot in LA. We couldn’t visit it because it’s not in NYC!

  18. OffbeatWorlds says:

    This was awesome guys, but you missed one very important location: the hotel in which they first meet the Slimer!

  19. baphomet2013 says:

    BTW, I will be in NY to visit you guys just as soon as I take care of these silly drug charges. APPARENTLY marijuana is still illegal in the US… on second thought, you guys come here.

  20. baphomet2013 says:

    You guys are fantastic. Now, who else remembers the Ghost Busters music video?

    I had the pleasure of visiting NYC last fall and has the exact same reaction as they do at 3:25. Highlight of my trip.

  22. patrickhwillems says:

    Check again. The statue shot is in there. We did shoot something at the church (and shouted “No one steps on a church in my town!”) but decided to cut it for time, since it wasn’t a primary location.

  23. patrickhwillems says:

    Yup, that’s why we skipped the inside. Same with the hotel.

  24. errantthoughts says:

    The Interior shots of the New York Public Library were also shot in LA. They filmed the opening scene at the Los Angeles Public Library. The only reason I know that is I saw a “Making Of” years ago and Dan Akroyd was talking about it.
