Dana's Apartment is a 15 floor apartment building, located on the Upper West Side, where Dana Barrett lives, at least the third she's occupied.


After the Vigo incident, Dana Barrett moved to a new apartment with her son Oscar. Dana occupied apartment unit 15. Some time later, in the spring, Dana was on the phone with her mother when she was whisked from her kitchen to Tiamat's Dimension and interrogated by Tiamat about the nature of her time as host of Zuul. Once Tiamat was done toying with Dana, she was back in her kitchen. The next day, Special Agent Melanie Ortiz and Kylie Griffin were sent by Janine Melnitz investigate Dana's apartment. While Melanie asked Dana some questions, Kylie took readings. She got nothing off the scale but noted as soon as she entered Dana's apartment, the hair on the back of her neck stood right on end. As a precaution, Dana agreed to stay a few days at the Waltz-Partington Hotel. While she packed and talked to her mother over the phone, Dana was found there was a brick wall blocking her passage.

The Ghostbusters were given entry into the building. However, they were not allowed to use the elevator. Peter was shoved to the ground after he pressed the up button. Simulating the first battle with Gozer, the Ghostbusters walked up all 15 flights to the roof. Instead of the roof, they entered Tiamat's Dimension and confronted Tiamat. After they Crossed the Streams on Tiamat, the Ghostbusters found themselves back on the apartment roof. At the conclusion of the Tiamat incident, Dana had Ray double check her apartment to make sure it was clear of any trace of psychokinetic energy. Soon after, Oscar returned from visiting his father.
