NYC Firehouses each have a distinct history and tradition. Indeed, many of the houses predate the present day FDNY by a hundred or more years and were founded as volunteer firehouses that competed for firefighting "rights." These shirts represent the unique personalities of a few of these firehouses.
Our FDNY Ladder 5 T-shirt pays homage to our FDNY neighbors right here in Greenwich Village, NYC. FDNY Ladder Company 5 was orgainzed September 25,1865.
