Photo by myself in Park Slope Brooklyn, around Fourth Avenue and Sixth Street.
The firetruck at Engine Company 239 was bathed in bright sunshine, Friday afternoon.
The firehouse above has been in existence since 1895 and was only recently renovated. You can see photos of the exteriors and interiors here.
Incidentally, this fire station had a woman captain, one of the few women in the organization. PBS made a movie about Captain Brenda Berkman and other women in the FDNY, called 'Taking the Heat'. You can read more about it here.
The FDNY lost 343 members on September 11, 2001.
