    This is the firehouse used in Ghostbusters. It is the 2nd oldest firehouse in New York City and is home to Hook and Ladder Company #8. Built in 1903, the building was the first Beaux-Arts style firehouse in NYC. When originally built, the firehouse was twice the size it is today -- it had to be reduced in size when Varick Street was widened in 1913. The interiors for the firehouse scenes were shot in Los Angeles, California. There is even a Lego set for this famous building!

    This firehouse was also featured in the 2005 movie Hitch and in a Seinfeld episode.
