Our Brooklyn neighborhood:


Located just outside the Red Hook, Brooklyn end of the Brooklyn-Battery tunnel, this firehouse was one of the first firehouse's to respond to the September 11, 2001 attack on the WTC.

On that day Ladder 101 lost all seven men who answered that call. Their brothers from Engine 202, who also answered that call, were uninjured. Both the engine and ladder trucks were destroyed.
