Theme: The Idea: Location of former Apartment building built by Occultist Architect The Aspect: Spook Central The Face(s): Oscar Barrett Description:
Across the street from Tavern on the Green (in Central Park), 55 Central Park West is the location of the infamous Goser incident (aka the Nerve Gas Attack of 1985). Glossed over by the Government (both Federal, State, and Local) as a terrorist incident involving highly sensitive nerve agents, this corner is the location of the largest Para-Temporal cross rep in the world. It was here that the Sumerian God, Goser, entered into the world, intent on destroying human civilization, only to be stopped by four mortals equipped with a little knowledge and nuclear accelerator particle weapons.
In reward for their efforts, the Ghostbusters were arrested, their assets seized, and they were never seen again. Shortly after the incident, the original building was torn down and a new, more modern Apartment building was built on the location. Oddly enough, one of the people involved in the incident, NYC Philharmonic Lead Cellist Dana Barret, was one of the first people to move into the building (along with her son, Oscar), where she remains a steady presence in the building, making all who move in feel welcome. It helps that Oscar Barret was recently installed as Superintendent of the building.
