Change Is The Only Constant

I used to be a huge Ghostbusters fan.  The movie was excellent, and the first season of the animated series became my geekout drug.  Other kids were Trekkies, some were Whovians, I was a Ghostbuster.  Got wobbly partway through the second season and when the NOW Comics series went under.  Third season, it fell apart.

But I still have fond memories of those days.  Not enough for me to join any of the Ghostbusters cosplayers out there (let's face it -- not only is it an easy costume to put together, but you can have a body like mine and not have people screaming to pluck out their eyeballs if they see you in it), but still fond memories.  So this actually brings a bit of nostalgia back to me....

This, obviously, is the building where the exteriors for Ghostbusters 1 and 2 were shot, known around NYC as The Hook And Ladder 8.

The station is being closed due to funding.

Will someone buy it?  I mean, fans got enough money for a statue of Robocop in Detroit.  The Rocky statue in Philadelphia was just a prop, but fan reaction made it stay.  We've seen the reach of Ghostbusters has only become more popular in the intervening years.  It's possible someone might save it before it gets torn down.

Like I said...nostalgia....
