Not to be confused with Battery Park/Animated from Animated Continuity

Battery Park [1] is a 25 acre public park located in southern Manhattan.


A couple of weeks after an incident with the Interspatial Teleportation Unit, Janine Melnitz and several people at Battery Park noticed twin Statues of Liberty in New York Harbor. She called up Jenny Moran and asked for Ray Stantz but he left to authenticate a collector's item at Ray's Occult Books. While Jenny called Ray, Janine notified the others. Peter Venkman spoke to the Mayor and denied the Ghostbusters had anything to do with the phenomenon but informed him they were happy to investigate for a reasonable fee. Peter, Ray, and Winston Zeddemore investigated and took readings. They were interviewed by a NY1 News reporter in the afternoon.


  • On page 3 of Ghostbusters 101 #3, in panel 4, behind Janine and the bystanders is the East Coast Memorial, a World War II memorial that commemorates those who died in coastal waters during the Battle of the Atlantic. Several of the granite pylons and part of the bronze eagle statue can be seen.
  • On page 3 of Ghostbusters 101 #3, in panel 4, on the far left, the man in the grey hoodie holding his son and standing next to his significant other is Ghostbusters fan, Jeffrey Shreck Junior. Shreck's son is carrying his Stay Puft Marshmallow Man plush doll. In real life, he carries it around with him all the time. [2]
  • On page 3 of Ghostbusters 101 #3, in panel 4, behind the bald man in blue, Leda from The Real Ghostbusters episode "No One Comes to Lupusville" makes a non-canon cameo.
  • On page 3 of Ghostbusters 101 #3, in panel 4, on the far right, the trio appears to be visually based on the characters Gary, Wyatt, and Chet from the movie "Weird Science".
