Paragraph reads: "The Irving Trust bank on Avenue of the Americas eventually became the fictional Manhattan City Bank -- with the sequence being filmed directly across from the New York Public Library on Fifth Avenue, late in the afternoon of the same day the exterior and interior library footage had been shot."

Paragraph reads: "The short scene outside the bank served as a concise replacement for a more involved expository sequence inside which had persisted through the first three Aykroyd-Ramis drafts. Ultimately, the interior scene -- in which Venkman, Stantz and Spengler meet with a loan officer to discuss their decidedly nonstandard financial needs -- was deemed essentially unnecessary."

Between completion of the script and the day the bank scene was shot, Venkman's loan cost escalated from $75,000 to $95,000."
