1. Engine Company 31 Marker
Inscription. This building, constructed in 1895, is among the best of the many eclectic firehouses built by Napoleon Le Brun & Sons. Today it seems surprising that such an elaborate design would be used for so utilitarian a structure. The entire spirit of the building - with it's corner tower, steep roof, dormers, and stone and iron crestings - recalls a romantic fairy tale.
 
Erected 1989 by New York Landmarks and Preservation Foundation.
