Description

The original home of Engine Company 70 remained active until 2008. The building has since been meticulously restored. Vintage white subway tile walls have been repaired on the ground floor and the front engine door has been reconstructed from original architectural drawings. One of the original brass fire poles is still intact. The back room, which housed a small horse stable, has been transformed into a modern kitchen. The building's ground floor often hosts weddings and events while the upper floor is home to a film production company.
