Save Ghostbusters Firehouse in New York!
May 23, 2011

Not sure how we can save it actually... but somebody has to talk to New York mayor Michael Bloomberg. NYC is making budget cuts and 20 firehouses around the city are in danger of being closed, including the beloved Ladder 8 - otherwise known as Ghostbusters HQ!

Ever since Peter, Ray, Egon and Winston moved out it reverted back to the FDNY (in our alternate universe anyway). But now some are worried that if Ladder 8 does get shut down, it might even get torn down and that would be absolutely tragic. Now, it's not like we can do much to sway the mayor from up here in Canada (aside from reminding him that Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman is a Canuck) but if you wanted to say... I dunno... write Mr. Bloomberg a letter and compel him to save the firehouse, his address is: Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, City Hall, New York, NY 10007.

And you can reach him via email by clicking here.
