A condo with a view of Ladder Eight-—AKA the "Ghostbusters" firehouse

Just in time for the Ghostbusters reboot, a condo with views of the famous firehouse where the original ghost-busting crew had their offices has come on the market. This four-bedroom at 11 North Moore Street in TriBeCa overlooks Ladder Eight, whose exterior was featured prominently in the 1984 film. The loft apartment is interesting in its own right, with a layout designed by a prestigious architectural firm, featuring massive windows and luxe details. And the price shows it: The condo is listed for $9.5 million by CORE

Light won't be a problem: The living area is illuminated via eight floor-to-ceiling windows facing south and west, offering views not only of the firehouse but also the Freedom Tower and the Hudson River; we bet the sunsets look fantastic from here. The open kitchen benefits from multiple exposures as well, and is equipped with upscale appliances, including what looks like a massive fridge and a large pantry. 

Off the living room is a library that could double as a bedroom. On the other side of the apartment is the master suite, which includes a walk-in closet, a separate dressing room, and an impressive bathroom outfitted with marble tile, a walk-in shower, soaking tub, and double vanity. The remaining two bedrooms, across the hallway, each come with their own spacious closets and baths, and a fourth bathroom can be found in the living room. 

The floorplan reveals an in-unit washer and dryer, and some alternate options for the layout--one bedroom could be used as an office, for instance, and the location of the master could be swapped with another bedroom. The building offers several amenities to residents, including 24-hour doorman service, a fitness center, and a private landscaped courtyard--and of course, an iconic neighbor.
