Must See Filming Locations: The ‘Ghostbusters’ Firehouse

We’d be remiss if didn’t include the iconic New York City firehouse that served as the Ghostbusters headquarters in our series of Must See Filming Locations.
Hook & Ladder 8, located at 14 N Moore St in Tribeca is still one of the most visited filming locations in NYC. The building is also an active firehouse and the firefighters who call this station home are always happy to discuss the building’s history.
This firehouse also became the site of a small memorial to beloved actor/director/writer/comedian Harold Ramis (who played genius Ghostbuster Egon and co-wrote the script with fellow Ghostbuster Dan Aykroyd). Candles, flowers, and Twinkies were laid out on the sidewalk as word of his passing spread. But, despite reports, the memorial does not include the famous Ghostbusters sign.
