5 NYC Firehouses Get Landmark Status
NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission
Engine Co. 228, left, and Engine Co. 240/Battalion 48, right, both in Brooklyn, were given landmark status Tuesday along with three other firehouses in New York City.
Five New York City firehouses have received landmark status.
The city's Landmarks Preservation Commission says the firehouses have "distinctive" architecture. They've been in continuous use for more than a century.
They're in Sunset Park and Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn; Bathgate and Longwood, in the Bronx; and Rockaway Park, Queens.
New York City now has 37 landmarked firehouses. All but five are still operating.
