1. Firehouse Engine Company No. 33 Marker
Inscription. This 1898 firehouse, designed by Ernest Flagg and W.B. Chambers, is a striking example of the French Beaux Arts style of architecture. At the time of construction it was also the headquarters of the Chief of the Fire Department. The colorful and flamboyant design of this otherwise utilitarian structure is particularly appropriate to its function. Its scarlet and gold horse-drawn engines and daring firemen were the envy and admiration of every boy.
