It was cool to see this building that was in the movie! It was a must see for the kids, along with the Ghostbusters fire station. It is definitely a spooky looking building even without all the Hollywood effects.

Unfortunately when we visited (12 May 2018) the whole building was covered in scaffolding, which was a real shame. The ghostbusters symbols are still visible on the pavement but it just wasn't quite the same. I probably should have checked TripAdvisor first! Pics attached for...More

We stopped while riding around Central Park to have a look and get some photos of it. It bought back some great childhood memories. Don't need a lot of time to see it. Was a lovely building with great architecture also.

If you loved the movie and you are in Central Park, just walk by and take some photos, most of my friend immediately recognized the building.

Just as imposing as in the film. A short walk outside of central park. The Gothic church next door is nice too.
