The Retirement Center is a nursing home for senior citizens in New York City.
The Ghostbusters met the Squid Ghost for the first time while responding to a call from the Retirement Center. While the residents waited outside, the guys headed in. Lots of household items were damaged and copious amounts of Laughing Ectoplasm were left behind by the ghost. Once the Squid Ghost vacated the center, the Ghostbusters gave the residents the all clear to return inside.
