So, this is not set in New York AT ALL, but is instead set in Salem, Massachusetts. However, today I came into work and the fabulous Virginia Smith had brought her copy of Hocus Pocus in for me to take home and enjoy at my leisure. This movie is amazing. It features Garry Marshall as the Devil, sort of. And a cat who can talk and also is cursed to live forever. N.B. when I first saw this movie as a kid, I thought the cat's name was "Zachary Binx" but that the characters all said "Zachary" with a lisp so that it sounded like "Thackeray." Well, in reality, the character's name is "Thackeray." The more you know etc.
