‘Ghostbusters’ Firehouse Closing For 3-Year Renovation to Get All the Ghosts Out

May 6, 2015 | Liam Mathews

The Tribeca firehouse that served as the ghost-catching outfit’s headquarters in Ghostbusters will be closing for a 3-year-long gut renovation, according to Downtown Express — because that’s how long it will take to capture all the ghosts running loose in the building.

An FDNY spokesperson told Downtown Express that the floor in the 110-year-old Ladder 8 firehouse needs to be replaced to accommodate much heavier modern fire trucks. But that’s just a cover, because the real reason is that it’s haunted.

Unfortunately, these means that Tribeca residents will suffer longer emergency response times, as well as more aggressive supernatural activity.
