“It’s so amazing, Moll… The love inside. You take it with you.”

Sam Wheat (Patrick Swayze)

Mostly filmed in New York City, Ghost featured locations that are now regularly visited by fans, with Sam and Molly’s loft building in the top spot.

Especially since the facade of 102 Prince Street is still largely recognizable. We can also add Crosby Street, where Sam’s attack takes place at the beginning of the story, or Franklin Street Station and Myrtle Avenue Station.

In contrast, the sequences in which Sam learns to “be a ghost” and interact with his environment in the subway were all shot in a studio in Los Angeles.

A true pop culture phenomenon, Ghost is, like Dirty Dancing, Rocky and a few others, more than just a movie.

The audience made it their own, with the same fervor as the tourists visiting 102 Prince Street, probably with the Righteous Brothers’ Unchained Melody in mind.

Twenty ghosts can be seen or glimpsed in the film.
