Williamsburg Slide Show Du Jour: Inside Engine 212

This weekend I met my good friend and community activist extraordinaire, Phil DePaulo. After having lunch he asked if I’d like to check out the interior of Engine 212 (also known as The Peoples Firehouse)  at 136 Wythe Avenue. He told me they were preparing for a one-night event and this was a very unique opportunity. Being a maven of things old, dusty and decayed I thought about this for maybe nanosecond and enthusiastically replied:

Hell yeah!

Follows is a sampling of photographs from my experience. Enjoy!

I can hardly wait to see this place restored back to its former and all-too-well deserved glory— how about you?

  4. Let’s hope they can keep some of the original detail– like that fab radiator (so beautifully photographed by the mister).

Tell me what you're thinking...
