I was in LA over the weekend, and on a whim, went looking for the firehall used for interior shooting on Ghostbusters one and two – all the trips I’ve made to LA, and I never once had a chance to see the firehall.
Located at 255 E. 5th street (at Maple), it sits in the middle of the toy district – the area is filled with toy companies, wholesalers, and stores. And the area is also filled with a lot of street citizens – all in all, a strange vibe area, but you can see why it’s such a popular shooting location in LA. You can also tell, by the people in front, just how much wider and larger, overall, the building is compared to its New York cousin. Movie magic kids – small building on the outside, twice as big on the inside.
