The City In Film: Ghostbusters
Scouting NY does a very welcome and in-depth analysis of New York City, then and now, as seen through the classic lens of Ghostbusters.
One of the pleasures of this film is that it is shot in locations I am familiar with: Columbia University, the Upper West Side, and Tribeca. Having seen their past captured as the sets of a 1980's film makes being in them in the present that much more thrilling. Scouting NY's two-part dissection is a bit more precise though.
I would like to take this opportunity to request NYC then-and-now analyses of the following films: The Wiz, Klute, and The Warriors.
