Located in Tribeca, south of Manhattan, the easily spottable building is a fire station named Hook & Ladder 8. As an anecdote, it nearly closed in 2011 after budget cuts, but the mobilization of local residents, deeply attached to this building dating from 1895, enabled to keep it going. Not far from the World Trade Center, its firemen were one of the first to intervene during the 9/11 attacks and a sign in the hall displays a few phones exhumed from the ruins of Ground Zero.
On the spot, the connections with Ghostbusters still exist ! First of all on the sidewalk where huge letters were drawn establishing a link between the Ghostbusters’ logo and the firemen while inside the poster of Ghostbusters 2 takes pride of place ! The firemen are very welcoming and when they aren’t in operation, they are pleased to pose with the many tourists who visit the place. However, don’t expect to find the entire headquarters of the Ghostbusters, the indoor scenes were shooted in a abandoned fire station in Los Angeles !
