When I moved to New York my parents told me that I should try to see as much of the city as possible, because you never know how long you will stay there. Up until now I have seen quite a lot of the city, but I think there is still a lot of stuff I didn't see just yet. Today I did something very touristy. I joined a bustour with On Location Tours. I chose the 'New York TV and Movies sites' tour. This morning at 11 I got on the bus and we were driven around the city for 3.5 hours to see various places. I was actually a nice tour. The thing I liked the most is that you get to see a lot from the city and from a whole other perspective then when you are walking the streets (that's what I always do). I had seen most of the streets we drove before, but it's fun to hear that this apartment was used in that movie or that this restaurant was used in that TV serie, etc. And since it was raining a lot today I couldn't have picked a better day!
This firehouse was used in the movie 'Ghostbusters'. It still is (and was back in 1984) a fully operational firehouse.
