1. Peter Venkman
You freak out when a cockroach is in your bed, Venkman totally keeps his cool when he finds his girlfriend floating in one. He’s got essential qualities that we all aspire to have in NYC, including being totally unflappable, weird, brilliant, and a complete smart ass, and when it comes down to it, he believes NYC has enough goodwill in it to defeat ancient Carpathian ghost tyrants that want to bring about the end of the world.
Andrew Zimmer is Thrillist's NYC Editor and ain't afraid of no ghosts, either. Okay, maybe he is just a little bit. Follow him on Twitter and Instagram.
