FDNY Engine 209, Brooklyn, NY

IMG_1957 This former fire house (now owned by a private company) was built in 1965 and designed by Pedersen & Tilney. The firm was active from 1952-64 and based in New Haven, CT. They have a substantial body of work there including housing, institutional buildings, and restoration projects, many done by Petersen once the firm dissolved. Elsewhere in Brooklyn, they did one rather severe middle school and most likely other buildings in the city. Most of this information came from the wonderful resource of Brownstoner’s Building of the Day column. http://www.brownstoner.com/blog/2012/11/building-of-the-day-850-bedford-avenue/
