The East River 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. The Queensboro Bridge was built over a part of the East River to connect Queens to Manhattan.
After 3/4 of the Ghostbusters were murdered, their bodies were stuffed into Ecto-1 then Fred drove it off into the East River. In the aftermath of The Bosses' coyote operation, it appears Angels fished Ecto-1 from the river. It took the guys several showers to get the smell of the river off themselves.
