Ghostbusters Firehouse On The Chopping Block

20 firehouses in New York City are threatened with closings.

One of the most well known is the Ghostbusters firehouse that serves lower Manhattan. 

Local officials have led numerous protests before June 3. But on that day there was a protest march led by the firefighters themselves and their unions. 

With each closing the chance of someone in the city losing their life because of delay in fighting a fire will increase. 

Some have suggested that Mayor Bloomberg could save some of the firehouses by minimizing the number of private contracts for jobs that city workers could do for a lower cost.

But as of today it seems that the Stay Puft man will have to go and smile no more.
