Staten Island is one of the five boroughs of New York City and is considered the southernmost part of the city and state of New York.
One evening, Karen Pearson and her husband finished packing for a big trip and set the alarm to ring at 5:49 am. At some point, Karen was visited by the Sandman and her right eye was taken. They called the police. Brent Mitchell from the 120th precinct called on the Ghostbusters for their help in the matter. They went into the Pearson house and were placed in a lucid dream state by the Sandman. Eventually, they reunited and defeated the Sandman. Still levitating in the Pearson's living room, they all fell to the ground.
- On page 1, in panel 1, of Ghostbusters Annual 2015, Dan Schoening based the Pearson house on an actual residence on Staten Island and a fictitious one. 
- On page 9, in panel 1, of Annual 2015, the address on the Pearson's doorway is now 248 instead of 428 during the dream.
