For the past 10 years Joseph Natale Schneiderman has visited 55 firehouses in the grand City of New York.
He is a "Buff", or someone who visited firehouses in their spare time (it also meant once that someone rode with them if they so chose!). So, come with him, on his 5-borough journey to these 55 firehouses, as you learn about the history of the firehouses and fire engines, firefighters, and his personal experiences. You’ll also see plenty of non-firefighting related things to do, like restaurants and other points of interest in the area of his visits!
From "Fire Under the Bridge" (Engine 205/Ladder 118, Brooklyn) to "The Cuckoo's Nest" (Engine 89/Ladder 50, The Bronx), to the “Corona Tigers” (Engine 289/Ladder 138, Queens) to the "Pride of Midtown" (Engine 54/Ladder 4/Battalion 9, Manhattan), and finally to the "Splendor in the Grass" (Engine 154, Staten Island), it's a 5 alarm journey that no buff, firefighter, or New York City fan will want to miss! So grab a Metrocard (you’re takin' subways), an FDNY shirt, and a camera, and get out here and buff!
