The Ladder 8 company firehouse at 14 North Moore Street in Tribeca is about to be closed for a three-year gut renovation, despite having a received a perfectly good renovation circa 1984 from Drs. Venkman, Stanz, and Spengler, in the movie Ghostbusters. A Fire Department spokesperson claims that the renovation is being done so that the house will be better able to accommodate modern firetrucks, which are larger and heavier than they used to be. But we know the real reason: Walter Peck from the Environmental Protection Agency tipped somebody off to the fact that there are dangerous and possibly hazardous waste chemicals, in the form of liquified ghosts, being stored in the basement.
