Ghostbusters II Street Digging

East 8th Street & South Los Angeles Street
Los Angeles, CA 90014

Fun Facts
  • While the real First Avenue in Manhattan was used in the movie for the baby carriage chase and the street inspection scenes, the actual digging was actually shot on a this street in Los Angeles. The differences are most evident by comparing the background behind Dana at the beginning of the movie to the background behind the guys digging.
  • In the background of the shot of the baby carriage narrowly avoiding getting hit by the bus in N.Y., you can see the green awning of Cho-Sen Food Shoppe Ltd. That green awning, and the hanging dividers that loosely separate the traffic and dust from the produce outside, are a facade, covering up an otherwise boring storefront. That awning was recycled in L.A. behind the road dig. This explains why the awning in the L.A. scene looked so loose compared to a real awning - it was moved to L.A. after the New York shoot and reused to redress a different street. Apparently the Cho-Sen Food Shoppe Ltd. store is meant to help solidify both intersections as being the same, even though everything else at both locations is entirely different.
