Fire Engine Company No. 67
Washington Heights, Manhattan, New York City, New York, United States The station house for Engine Company 67 was constructed in 1897-98 for a newly-formed fire company established to serve the rapidly-growing section of New York City known as Washington Heights. Using the specific requirements developed for a firehouse, French-trained architects Ernest Flagg and Walter B. Chambers created a dynamic and lyrical composition which sets it apart from many other firehouse designs of the period. They used classical elements such as a bracketed cornice, a hooded, round arch, an elaborate cartouche, and a pedimented window opening set in a masonry building. They also included modem steel framing which is articulated in the large expanse of glass window openings, creating a unique facade which pays homage to both the past and future. Flagg and Chambers explored these same ideas again in 1898-99, on a second, larger firehouse at 44 Great Jones Street for Engine Company 33 (a designated New York City Landmark). DESCRIPTION AND ANALYSIS Firefighting in New York As early as the colonial period, the government of New York was concerned about the possibility of fires. Under Dutch rule all men were expected to participate in Firefighting activities. After the English took over, the Common Council organized a force of thirty volunteer firefighters in 1737. They operated two Newsham hand pumpers that had recently been imported from London. By 1798, the Fire Department of the City of New York (FDNY), under the supervision of a chief engineer and six subordinates, was officially established by an act of the state legislature. As the city grew, this force was augmented by new volunteer companies. In spite of growing numbers of firefighters and improvements in hoses and water supplies, fire was a significant threat in an increasingly densely built-up city. Of particular import was the "Great Fire" of December 16-17, 1835, which caused more damage to property than any other event in New York City. The damages resulting from several major fires which occurred between 1800 and 1850 led to the establishment of a building code, and an increase in the number of firemen from 600 in 1800, to more than 4,000 in 1865. Despite rapid growth, the department was often criticized for poor performance. Intense competition between companies began to hinder firefighting with frequent brawls and acts of sabotage, often at the scenes of fires. During the Civil War, when fire personnel became harder to retain, public support grew for the creation of a professional firefighting force, similar to that which had been established in other cities and to the professional police force that had been created in New York in 1845. In May 1865, the New York State Legislature established the Metropolitan Fire District, comprising the cities of New York (south of 86th Street) and Brooklyn. The act abolished the volunteer system and created the Metropolitan Fire Department, a paid professional force under the jurisdiction of the state government. By the end of the year, the city's 124 volunteer companies with more than 4,000 men had retired or disbanded, to be replaced by thirty-three engine companies and twelve ladder companies operated by a force of 500 men. With the creation of a professional fire department in 1865, improvements were immediate, and included the use of more steam engines, horses and a somewhat reliable telegraph system. A military model was adopted for the firefighters, which involved the use of specialization, discipline, and merit. By 1870, regular service was extended to the "suburban districts" north of 86" Street and expanded still farther north after the annexation of parts of the Bronx in 1874. New techniques and equipment, including taller ladders and stronger steam engines, increased the department's efficiency, as did the establishment, in 1883, of a training academy for personnel. The growth of the city during this period placed severe demands on the fire department to provide services, and in response the department undertook an ambitious building campaign. The area served by the FDNY nearly doubled after Consolidation in 1898 when the departments in Brooklyn and numerous communities in Queens and Staten Island were incorporated into the city. After the turn of the century, the Fire Department acquired more modem apparatus on motorized vehicles, reflecting the need for faster response to fires in taller buildings. Throughout the twentieth century, the Department has endeavored to keep up with the evolving city and its firefighting needs. Firehouse Design By the early twentieth century, the firehouse as a building type had evolved from the wooden storage shed used during the seventeenth century to an imposing architectural expression of civic character. The 1854 Fireman's Hall, with its highly symbolic ornamentation, reflected this approach; but it was the last firehouse built for many y
