** The UsefulNotes/NewYorkSubway has ghost stations, too, including several that were closed due to the lengthening of platforms at adjacent stations. A number of them are also still intact, but trains don't stop there.

* The protagonist of the film ''Film/BeingJohnMalkovich'' works on Floor 7 1/2. It isn't a secret or anything, it's just an [[{{Bizarrchitecture}} architectural oddity]], accessed by using the emergency stop on the elevator halfway between floors 7 and 8 and then using the supplied crowbar to pry the doors open.

* Boston's Logan airport has terminals A, B, C, and E, but no D. Well... Terminal D technically exists, but to all intents and purposes it's a small, semi-abandoned, totally nondescript wing of Terminal C, so Massport took its letter away.

* Boston's Logan airport International Airport has terminals A, B, C, and E, but no D. Well... Terminal D technically exists, existed, but to all intents and purposes it's it was just a small, semi-abandoned, totally set of three gates in a nondescript wing of Terminal C, so Massport took its letter away.in March 2006, they were renumbered and labeled as part of Terminal E ([=E1C, E1D & E1E=]) on February 28, 2006. In 2016, following construction of an airside connector between Terminals E and C, these three gates were renumbered again to become the present gates [=C8-C10=] (as part of Terminal C).
* During their initial expansions in the 1970s, Breckenridge Ski Resort in Colorado used letters and numbers for their chairlifts. Skips in the numbers/letters exist due to some of these lifts getting replaced, as the replacement lifts have used names.

* ''TheWarAgainstTheChtorr''. The [[GovernmentAgencyOfFiction Uncle Ira Group]] is located on the 13th floor of a hotel in Denver, reached by a private elevator. The first-person protagonist mentions that "controlled-access architecture" is nothing unusual in this TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture world, as hotels use them for guests who need extra security and privacy. You'd only realise it was there if you walked the fire stairs, and if asked the hotel would claim it was a service floor. They just wouldn't mention what service.

* The last season of ''Series/TheA-Team'' had an episode where Murdock is infiltrating a mental hospital. He and Hannibal discover a secret floor because the elevator takes longer than usual to go between particular floors.
* In the eponymous ''AreYouAfraidOfTheDark'' episode, the thirteenth floor exists, but its occupants have long since disappeared. Turns out that the former residents are aliens, and they're coming back for their daughter, Karin.

** Another example from O'Hare is in the concourse letters: they have concourses B, C, E, F, G, H, K, L, and M. There actually used to be a Concourse D at O'Hare (which can be seen [[http://airchive.com/galleries/13511.jpg here]]), which was used by carriers like AirCal, Braniff, Continental, Eastern, Northwest Orient, Piedmont and United Express, but it was demolished as well to make room for the current Terminal 1 concourses. ORD, however, has never had a Concourse I or Concourse J.
