Made famous in the original Ghostbusters movie, this iconic building is located in the Manhattan neighborhood of Tribeca. It is a working firehouse and its firefighters were one of the first responders to the September 11 attacks.
The building, NY Fire Department’s Hook & Ladder Company 8, was first used for exterior shots in the 1984 Ghostbusters movie and has appeared in subsequent films in the franchise. It has also appeared in the movie Hitch and several TV shows including Seinfeld.
Built in 1903 in the Beaux-Arts style, it was originally twice the size but half was demolished when the adjoining street was widened. There is sometimes a full-size replica of the Ghostbusters sign hanging on the outside of the building and inside are enlarged photos from the films.
