FTN EXCLUSIVE: Is this the new Ghostbusters HQ? UPDATED: And here’s the GB suits

June 29th, 2015 by Marc Comments


So we all know the iconic Ghostbusters HQ from the movies, right? The beautiful Hok & Ladder 8 in New York, pictured above.

So, Paul Feig’s reboot is currently filming in Boston – standing in for New York – and while images have been leaking (here) we’ve been waiting to see where the new GB team will live in the movie.

It has to be iconic and beautiful, right? To keep up with the original.

Right? Nope, wrong.

Well, a source has shared the image below with FTN and informed us that this is the new GB HQ.

And, given all that we fear in this reboot, it would certainly make sense… we trust our source but hope that we’re wrong on this one.

Without further ado…

Is this is the Firehouse circa 2015. Sigh.

The Ghostbusters reboot will be released in 2016. 

UPDATE after pic…

UPDATE: Protoncharging has shared the new GB Jumpsuits via their Twitter page


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
