The Firehouse was a location considered for a headquarters in the 2016 movie. It eventually became their headquarters after saving the city from Rowan.


Primary CanonEdit

As the women were looking for a new place for operations by means of a Rental Agent, she introduced them to the Firehouse. However, after Erin asked about monthly rent, which turned out to be $21,000 a month, they ended up picking a much more budget friendly location.

After saving the city from Rowan, the Ghostbusters were finally able to, with government funding, move from the Chinese Restaurant into the Firehouse. Once settled in, they quickly began setting up a lab.

Secondary CanonEdit

IDW ComicsEdit

Abby got a call from Patty informing her she and Holtzmann failed to trap a ghost again even after being gone for awhile. Abby reiterated she wanted at least a Class 5 captured for study and requested Holtzmann stop blowing ghosts and cars up. Erin was mostly distracted by Kevin, who was dancing around in a broccoli outfit. Abby asked him to practice in the other room. Concerned with recent P.K.E. readings, Abby was adamant about being prepared to save the world again and started consulting the usual research materials. Erin remained at the Firehouse to go over the accounting while Abby, Patty, and Holtzmann went out on a call at the Stryker Beach Golf Course. Erin was aghast after discovering Kevin ordered ten cases of spray cheese on the business account. Kevin wasn't feeling it and refrained from answering the phone. Mike Hat brought a phone to Erin and dealt with a rude customer. Abby returned in denial about the team failing to trap a ghost again. Holtzmann retorted she had three ideas for an observation tank. Kevin realized they came back and handed a message to Abby. Abby pointed out it was one of his shoes. Kevin suddenly noticed Ray Stantz and Peter Venkman walking up the stairs then they vanished. Abby snapped her fingers and got Kevin's attention. He apologized and revealed he felt like he was somewhere else for a second then asked if they knew anyone named Venkman.

Two weeks after the dimensional bleed incident was resolved, Peter and Ray paid a visit to the Ghostbusters' Firehouse to fulfill Ray's promise and rebuild their Containment Unit. Holtzmann asked if an Interspatial Teleportation Unit was next but realized she seemed to have the schematics of it and making out with Jenny Moran in her memories. Ray shared Egon Spengler's findings that everyone might have some residual memories from crossing the streams. Peter warmed up to the idea of handing out teleportation units to other Ghostbusters. Rebecca Gorin arrived and Holtzmann introduced her to the bewildered Peter, as she that dimension's version of Dana Barrett. Meanwhile, Erin and Abby contemplated on the roof about what was next for them.

The Ghostbusters returned to the Firehouse after investigating a brownstone in Yorkville. Holtzmann revealed they had to be back by 5 pm or something she had cooking in the lab would get "messy." Patty guessed Zhu's Authentic Hong Kong Food for dinner and Erin asked Kevin, in vain, to call in a takeout order. Holtzmann tried to run an experiment using Erin and Patty, but the latter resisted and found an entry about the brownstone and its mad scientist owner Doctor Kruger. They all soon realized Kruger possessed Abby. More so after she vomited ectoplasm all over. Holtzmann used a new invention called the De-Possessor to separate Kruger and Abby from each other. Kruger drained the ladies then escaped Holtzmann's Ghost Zamboni and burst through the upper floors then flew to the Empire State Building. Luckily, Erin got insurance to cover the damage. They ran to the roof and spotted Kruger. Patty wanted to focus on research, inventing a new weapon, and making a plan but she was voted down. Holtzmann needed direct exposure to Kruger to figure out a weapon that would be effective against him. Erin found it odd no one was calling the Firehouse. Abby asked Kevin and he revealed he unplugged the phone because the calls were annoying him. They departed for the Empire State Building.

The Firehouse got in a flood of calls, including six from the Mayor, but after twenty minutes, Kevin cut the cord on the phone. Since Kevin did so seven times already, Abby was prepared and already had another replacement phone ready. Holtzmann began work on a new device while the others went back to Kruger's brownstone. She came up with a Dream Machine and used Kevin to test it. The results were mixed but Holtzmann happened upon a freak discovery that it made the perfect scrambled eggs. After the others returned, Patty eventually came out of Ecto-1 and revealed she figured out what Kruger's plan was. Holtzmann continued working on a dream merging feature with the Dream Machine and experimented on Abby and Erin but couldn't achieve it completely. Holtzmann was keen on implanting memories so all four of them would have a commonality from which to control the dream. Abby was against doing it a second time. Soon, they all realized they briefly met at St. Paul's Chapel many years ago when they were teenagers.
