The Ghostbusters Firehouse Dressed For Christmas

This isn’t a secret or anything, but Hook & Ladder #8 has been dressed for the season and looks great, especially in the snow storm that hit today (click the picture and look at the biggest size on Flickr for the full effect).

You probably recognize this iconic Manhattan firehouse from a number of films and TV shows, including Ghostbusters, Hitch, Seinfeld (when Kramer gets to drive the fire truck), and many, many others.

It’s one of my favorite firehouses in the city, and I’ve never seen it looking this good. Definitely check it out if you’re in Tribeca (North Moore St & Varrick St).

  1. That really is a nice looking firehouse. Like many folks, I happened on your blog through Gothamist this week. I’ve added you to my blog list. This is very cool stuff, thanks for sharing it.

  2. Good to know that there’s other people out there that are as much into the small city details as I am.
    It has always perplexed me that nobody had ever noticed those exquisite steel rats at the Grand Central Lexington entrance or noticed that extremely narrow building in midtown.
    Great job, great blog!

  3. I accidentally found this beautiful building while walking in Tribeca in October, did not take any photos which is sad, but these bring back nice memories…
