The story of firefighting in New York City is one of danger, tradition, pride, excitement, and tragedy. It is also the story of man's triumph over destructive forces. From the gaslight days of horse-drawn steam engines to the World Trade Center tragedy of 2001, the heroic men and women who make up the city's most dynamic public service have risked and often lost their lives in order to protect and serve the people of New York City.

New York City Firefighting: 1901-2001 chronicles the proudest fire department in America. The proximity of buildings in the city streets and the construction materials made each fire especially dangerous, but determined firefighters never hesitated to battle the flames and rescue the victims. Later, facing unprecedented heights and unparalleled danger, firefighters in New York City were called upon to battle infernos in the first skyscrapers, often using the most rudimentary equipment and barely protected from the flames. In its most trying moments, the Fire Department of New York responded to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in 1993 and 2001, dutifully rushing into the towers to save as many lives as possible and ultimately losing hundreds of their own.

For all those that want to see a pictorial history of the FDNY. A good way to follow the evolution of the New Youk Fire Department.

This is another "Images of America" historical non-fiction book, complete with black-and-white plus color photos of firefighters, fires and fire trucks of the New York Fire Dept. It begins at the turn of the 20th century in 1901, and continues all the way up to September 11th, 2001. There are mostly photos, and very little text, but all in all, a good read about the FDNY's history. The very best part of the book is the photos depicting FDNY's 'War Years' of 1965-1975, when arsonists destroyed much of Brooklyn and the South Bronx. Highly recommended if you're interested in NYC history or a fire enthusiast.

Many years ago Steve put out one of the first pictorial/real photo books ("FIRE!") on the FDNY and it has become a classic. Now, he does it again but this time he captures a full century of history. I know someone who likes to say "History is never more fascinating than when it's read from the day it was reported." Steve has adapted this expression to photographs. For anyone who has an interest in the FDNY, whether you are a tried and true old buff or a post-9/11 admirer, this book is a must!!
