Not to forget the headquarter of the Ghostbusters at the FDNY Hook & Ladder 8 in Tribeca! Ever wondered what kind of building the monstrous ape King Kong in 1933 conquered? It’s the Empire State Building! And this landmark is so popular, that by today it has been featured in more than 250 movies, including Sleepless in Seattle and An Affair to Remember. These and many more New Yorker movie locations are waiting for you!
