    In this July 12, 2016, file photo, a man walks past the firehouse that was featured in the 1984 movie "Ghostbusters," in New York. The New York Daily News reports a Ghostbusters fan from Britain flew with his girlfriend to New York on Monday, Dec. 5, 2016, to propose at the firehouse.

    A British man flew his girlfriend all the way across the pond to New York City so he could propose to her at the firehouse used in the "Ghostbusters" franchise.

    Wearing a hard hat and safety vest, Giles Baugh dropped to one knee at Ladder 8 in Tribeca and asked Melissa Ward to marry him.

    Ward, who says she's learned to embrace Baugh's "Ghostbusters" fandom, happily agreed.

    The New York Daily News reports the proposal took several months of planning.

    A city employee convinced the FDNY to go along with Baugh's stunt so long as the proper safety precautions were taken. The 1903 firehouse is currently undergoing a $6.5 million renovation.

    Baugh says he can recite his favorite scenes from the 1984 movie verbatim.
