The East River [1] is a strait that connects the south end of Upper New York Bay to northern Long Island. It separates Long Island from Manhattan and the Bronx on the mainland.

HistoryEdit

Feeling guilty when Dr. Mulch and his expedition disappeared while searching for the New Jersey Parallelogram, Jim Venkman made his way to the East River Marina and rented a speed boat to find the crew. Some time later, city workers disturbed the slumber of Necksa while laying down pipes. Angered by the pollution around him, Necksa expelled Undines to sink New York City and conquer it in his name. Peter Venkman overcame all odds and defeated Necksa alone. [2] [3] The Ghostbusters also battled an Egyptian water spirit on the East River, during which Peter was dragged 50 feet into the water. [4] [5] [6] [7]

When the Ghostbusters were kidnapped by ghosts, Janine Melnitz, Louis Tully, and Slimer drove along the East River to an abandoned tunnel. Between midnight and dawn, a portal to the Netherworld was open. [8] [9] They used the portal to travel to the Netherworld, rescue the Ghostbusters, and return back home.
