At the time of shooting, the Ghostbusters crew was disappointed to find that the library was going through restoration work, and had to shoot tight to avoid showing too much scaffolding. They went back to the traditional herringbone pattern in places where the pattern was more straightforward, although at the time i seem to remember not being particularly impressed with the quality of the new bricks they were using! One of the best movies ever made…. Now it is the richest and the least industrialized. This is what I see. Yep, like you I have amazing memories of this film.
Re: Columbia looking dingy — when I was as an undergraduate, just a few years after the movie came out, Columbia did a massive amount of pressure cleaning of the stone exteriors of Low and Butler libraries, and then moved on to the other major campus buildings, I think including the brick. I'm also available for speaking engagements discussing my work as a scout and my explorations throughout New York City accompanied by hundreds of photos, of course! When her boyfriend Johnny Sins starts to get jealous, she eases his worries with a messy and passionate blowjob. I work as a movie location scout. None of this 2 seconds to get from Grand Central to the Guggenheim on foot nonsense name the movie! Our first shot is of the building towering over the skyline, as seen from Central Park.

Also note that a gate has been put up, preventing you from going into the area where they have most of their conversation. Anyway, a minor detail, but something that at the time was a major disruption on your way to class. The New York of 1983 is very different from the post-Giuliani city of today — it feels dangerous, gritty, dirty, tough, angry, and exciting. The only clue that this is the correct location is that wall of stone on the left hand side, which seems to match in color to the above photograph. The empire stat building is dead center but you can barely see the twin towers in the back ground as the ghosts are originating from downtown.
I can tell from the footage that they were filming across the street from the New York Public Library… …but I think the entrance to this building has been completely renovated. Of course, the first image is actually a matte painting, in which a very realistic painting is superimposed on actual footage of Central Park. I can tell you I never walk up that staircase by Kent Hall without picturing Murray and Ackroyd sitting on that ledge, bemoaning their fate and the horrors of the results-expecting public sector.

When her boyfriend Johnny Sins starts to get jealous, she eases his worries with a messy and passionate blowjob. Nevertheless, this shot reveals the extent of the work… Today, the library is yet again under restoration — the top portion is covered in canvas, and the bottom right area is blocked off. I love the light-up taxi globe positioned over the entrance: Louis Tully tries to get into Tavern on the Green! I attribute the grime to the soot that accumulated from decades of car exhaust especially in the leaded gas, pre-catalytic converter era emitted by the traffic on Broadway and Amsterdam. I think the original entrance was more inset. Like you said it was iconic, it was grittier, but it had this sense of magic. How much has New York changed a quarter of a century later? The difference was truly amazing, and it was obvious after the fact that no similar cleaning had been done for at least decades.

In fact it was playing in a shop the other day and I was walking around mouthing the words as I went. I still remember the day we thought they were spraying fake snow on the street. It seems like a struggle just to cross the street. Income from Ghostbusters was used to restore South Field and it is still grassy and green today. .
I now plan to use Ghostbusters as a film in my next class and with your permission use this website to describe storyboarding and sets to my class. We have no control over the content of these pages. I was born in june 1975 so this came out around my 9th birthday. We take no responsibility for the content on any website which we link to, please use your own discretion while surfing the links. When I eventually went to New York I was slightly disappointed. Note the new glass-curtain building on the right. Best of luck and looking forward to more of your fantastic blog! They had scrubbed the graffito off, but where the letters had been was much whiter than the surrounding stone, which was a much darker, grimy color.
The alley next to the firehouse is used for firefighter parking. It also looks like the building might have had central air installed, as the air-conditioning units have been removed. The building to the left, which was probably considered a dump in 1983, is now the Bubbles Lounge champagne bar. Unfortunately, I only set first set foot in the city in 2000, and by then, New York was a completely different place. My job is to stare at the city. Other than some noticeable differences in foliage, Columbia continues to look the the same.
