Ghostbusters Los Angeles Firehouse 100th Anniversary

 By Paul Rudoff on Oct. 2, 2010 at 5:13 PM , Categories: Ghostbusters 1, Miscellaneous, Ghostbusters 2

By all accounts, it was 100 years ago today, on October 2, 1910, that Fire Station #23 in Los Angeles, California opened for firefighting business. Ghostheads would know it best as the shooting location for the interiors of Ghostbusters Headquarters in both movies, and as the birthday party interior in Ghostbusters II. Of the two firehouses used in both movies, L.A. 23 is the oldest by two years.

There are many who never would have thought that the firehouse would still be standing today. From what I understand, it's not in the best of shape. As far as I know, the city of Los Angeles owns the building, but they don't take active care of it, so paying for its upkeep isn't very high on their list of priorities. The building's caretaker is a man named Daniel Taylor, who has put together the Corporation for History, Art and Culture as a way of helping to raise funds to cover the costs of maintaining the building.
