Williamsburg Slide Show Du Jour: Inside Engine 212

After having lunch he asked if I’d like to check out the interior of Engine 212 (also known as The Peoples Firehouse)Â at 136 Wythe Avenue. He told me they were preparing for a one-night event and this was a very unique opportunity.

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