New York City Fire Museum
New York City Fire Museum Review
In the former headquarters of Engine 30—a handsome beaux arts building dating from 1904—retired firefighters volunteer their time in the morning and early afternoon to answer visitors' questions. The collection of firefighting tools from the 18th century to the present includes hand-pulled and horse-drawn engines, speaking trumpets, pumps, and uniforms. A memorial exhibit with photos, paintings, children's artwork, and found objects relating to the September 11 attacks is also on view—a poignant reminder and tribute to the 343 firefighters who died on 9/11. The museum is two subway stops (via the E train) north of the Ground Zero site.
