Yesterday the city released the list of 20 firehouses slated for closure in July (this city is running a little low on cash.) The list includes eight in Brooklyn, three in the Bronx, three in Manhattan, two on Staten Island, and four in Queens. Damn, you might be saying, that’s a lot of firehouses! Depressing! But wait—here’s something even more depressing; on the list is the Ghostbusters firehouse. The North Moore Street building is practically a landmark, and when people aren’t outside taking photos in front of it the firefighters inside are actually fighting fires. But money’s money. Perhaps to pave the way for a Harold Ramis museum? It would be the only upside.
