In 1984, Harlan and Robert were chased by the ghost of Edgar Allan Poe while he was in the form of several ravens. They ran past the Washington Square Arch just as the Ghostbusters arrived. In the 90s, Harlan sat on the curb in front of Casey J's Coffee and Books near Delgado's Gym as Egon Spengler arrived to take some readings. The next year, on the night of Day of the Dead, Harlan was in Bushwick at the intersection of Central Avenue and Bleecker Street. The next year, in the spring, Robert and Harlan were on the Upper West Side near Dana's apartment one evening when Peter Venkman suddenly pulled up by them on Ecto-5. They were not pleased.
