We Oughta Be In Pictures

Central Park, Schmentral Park. Yes, it’s a beautiful space, but Washington Square Park–our viagra online sales park– is its prettier, hipper downtown sister.  So pretty that she just begs to be in pictures. Many a film has been shot here and you can see why.  Here are but a few:

Barefoot In The Park:  In the 1960′s, newlyweds Jane Fonda and Robert Redford have a nasty drag down I’m-breaking-up-with-you-right-now-you-gorgeous-person-oh-yeah-well-I’m-breaking-up-with-you-so-there fight in the park.  Spoiler alert:  they made up and lived happily ever after.

(This shot was not taken in the park. Fonda wore pants in the park.)
When Harry Met Sally:  One time Harry met Sally right under the arch!

(I swear this is a still from the movie.  Ryan and

Crystal are just really, really tiny.  But rest assured, they are there.)
And Will Smith’s character lived right on the park in I Am Legend:

The Fresh Prince of Washington Square

In Ghostbusters II, in which Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver, Dan Ackroyd et al discovered a massive river of ectoplasm and a resurgence of spectral activity which brought the phantom-stomping bunch back together, we saw scary stuff like this:

Takin’ down the spooks.

I’m sure there are plenty more, but these are the films I think about when I’m in the park. Can anyone add another movie to the list?
