Movies' Most Dangerous Buildings | Ghostbusters (1984)
Ghostbusters (1984)

Address: 55 Central Park West, New York

The Upside A luxurious apartment building on New York’s Upper West Side, this is home to creative types (classical musicians) as well as businessmen (accountants). Built by a true individual in classic Art Deco style, it combines great views over Central Park and a killer location with the potential for awesome roof parties and, of course, lovely apartments that can’t be that expensive if a mere musician can afford one.

The Downside Well, the architect was a madman who constructed the entire thing to be a sort of radio transmitter to far-off, hellish dimensions, but when the detailing is this fine and the rents this affordable, do you really care?

Survival techniques Don’t take a penthouse apartment. Practice good feng shui. Don’t buy eggs.

Chances of survival High, assuming the presence of Ghostbusters. Otherwise, you better enjoy being a hellhound.

How about that place from Resident Evil, what's it called, The Hive? There's zombies (naturally) and there's that room with the lasers that slice you up. Might count as dangerous, no? More
