In the News: “Ghostbusters” Revisits the Firehouse

Ghostbusters reboot Melissa McCarthy••• Re: the current Ghostbusters film: “In a scene much like the original, the gang runs around a firehouse, gleeful about the space. Reality sets in, though, after thirty years of gentrification adds up to a monthly rent that is five-figures. Hook and Ladder 8, the original building located in the Tribeca neighborhood, is easily worth $21,000 a month in rent.” I suppose this constitutes a SPOILER SO STOP READING IF YOU CARE. From a reader: “When the mayor’s top assistant says that they will get every resource they want, the one they choose is the firehouse.” Above: A scene from the shoot. —Uproxx
