Ghostbusters Firehouse

Saga Ghostbusters
Also appears in Movie Ghostbusters Ivan Reitman (1984) Movie Ghostbusters Paul Feig (2016) Movie Ghostbusters II Ivan Reitman (1989)
It's the most famous fire station in the world! Where the Ghostbusters Firehouse is located in the cult film directed by Ivan Reitman. A monument of pop culture that has reigned in the Tribeca district since 1903, inseparable from the American cinema of the 1980s...

“-I think this building should be condemned. There’s serious metal fatigue in all the load-bearing members, the wiring is substandard, it’s completely inadequate for our power needs , and the neighborhood is like a demilitarized zone.

– […] Wow. This place is great. When can we move in?”

Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis) and Raymond Stantz (Dan Aykroyd)

In New York, Reitman mainly films the exteriors, while the interiors are shot in Los Angeles. Like for example the first supernatural confrontation in the New York Public Library and of course the sequences supposed to take place inside the Ghostbusters Firehouse where Venkman, Stantz, Spengler and Zeddemore settle. These take place in reality in a disused barracks in Los Angeles…

It was Dan Aykryod, a Tribeca pet, who was owed their fame by the firefighters at Hook and Ladder Company 8. The actor has always loved the look of the building. This was also operated in the second part, again as the Ghostbusters Firehouse.

And it is the sign of the suite that the firefighters hung prominently inside while on the sidewalk are drawings making the link between the place and the film.

On September 11, 2001, the barracks was among the first to operate on the Site of the World Trade Center. Still in operation, renovated in 2018, it continues to attract fans from all over the world. And it’s not going to stop…

21 000

That’s the dollar amount for the building’s monthly rent when ghost hunters from the 2016 remake see the barracks as their headquarters.

FDNY Ladder 8

The emblematic Ghostbusters building, FDNY Ladder 8, has become a place of pilgrimage for fans. References to the film are numerous, both on the pavement and inside, and the firemen have become accustomed to posing with tourists.

Completed in 1903, it was the first fine arts style barracks in New York City.

On September 11, 2001, the barracks were among the first to intervene on the World Trade Center site.

Still in operation, renovated in 2018, it continues to attract fans from around the world. And it’s not about to stop…
