  • A unique attraction in the big city. I happened to visit the day Santa was rescued from the roof! Two floors of firefighting history provides a very thorough overview in a pretty small space. They also have a very nice banquet room on the 3rd floor for special events. I would highly recommend anyone with an interest in firefighting history visit the museum.
  • An awesome and inexpensive stop for firefighters or those interested in fire history in the City of New York. There is a lot to see in this three story building. Just a few blocks from a train stop, you can walk in and spend a couple hours exploring (if you want to) or a half hour perusing. Tons of history from speaking trumpets, engines, dogs, the halligan bar, and of course 9/11. My wife and I enjoyed it and if you have time and think this might be for you, give it a shot.
  • This museum is very close to Greenwich village so if you visit the"friend's" apartment pop in here too. You can try out the actual fire men' s outfit, see a bit of 9/11 original restored relics. And also you can visit some old fire engines and learn about the New York fire brigade.
  • This was an awesome experience - got to see some old engines and pump and ladder trucks from the past. Learned about the history of the FDNY. Shed some tears at the 9/11 exhibit. From excitement and joy to sorrow and sympathy, you will feel all feelings here, but that is part of what adds to the appeal. It is a complete experience. Being one of NYs bravest is not easy.
  • Love to support our brothers out there saving lives. A small but informative exhibit, with real firemen taking care of the facilities.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
