Since 1895 . . .
I was walking up in Bed-Stuy today (the lady had to swing by the Bed-Stuy Y) and took some photos of the home of FDNY Engine Company 235, formerly part of the Brooklyn Fire Department. Founded in 1895, the company still occupies its original firehouse on Monroe just west of Nostrand, right across from the apartment building with the key-lime trim.
There are some really beautiful buildings in the Bed-Stuy/North Crown Heights zone around the Nostrand Avenue A Stop, many of which were discussed in the "Walkabout with Montrose" series on Brownstoner.
