Jay Street Firehouse
12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Frank Freeman, 1882; Renovation, Nomad Architecture, 2014

Built in 1894, Brooklyn's Fire Department Headquarters is a six-story Romanesque Revival structure that is now neighbored by Metrotech and the Brooklyn Civic Center. The site was converted into housing and was recently rehabilitated through a partnership between PACC and MDG in order to restore it's historic beauty to the gem it once was, as well as give the tenants a building that they can be proud of. This is a testament to the city's dedication to creating quality affordable housing.

On OHNY Weekend, climb the six flights up to the historic crow's nest to see where Brooklyn's fire fighters once watched the horizon for plumes of smoke. Please note that visitors may be required to sign a waiver before ascending the tower’s historic staircase.
