Old firehouse? 12 E. 2nd St.
« on: October 05, 2008, 12:10:26 PM »
I was walking last night and I saw this apartment that looked like it was a converted firehouse. Any ideas who was quartered there?



If the link doesnt work, the address shows a picture of the building on street view

Nope, doesn't look like it was ever a firehouse.  Only house ever officially on East 2nd st is 222 E2 st, quarters of E28/L11.

  The only other firehouse address that resembles this one is 22 E. 12th Street where E72 was from 1900 to 1957. ;)

Salty Dog is in the 7500 block of 3rd Avenue.

It's always been a restaurant as far as I can remember (50+ yrs.)

Matter of fact, there was a FF fatality in there many years ago when it was called the "Rib & Rump Room".  Sorry I can't give dates, but I think it was in the early 1960's.

Could be an old Fire Patrol house, or possibly an old volunteer house. There's another building that looks like that in the 60's on the East Side.
