4. 55 Central Park West

55 Central Park West, or commonly known as “The Ghostbusters Building,” has become a must-visit for any fan of the film in New York City. The building was built in 1929, and designed by firm Schwartz & Gross, not by an insane architect who conducted rituals (like in the film).

In reality, the building is only a housing cooperative located within the Central Park West Historic District. However, it’s difficult for movie fans to not imagine the climax of The Ghostbusters outplaying in front of them when standing near the building. Although the building looks slightly different due to the altered roof in the movie, there is no doubt that 55 Central Park West is one of the most popular film locations in New York City, even though the film is relatively recent.
