its downtown by the seaport in a skyscraper bldg.

 

from wiki:

 

32 Old Slip, also known as One Financial Square, is a skyscraper in the Financial District of New York City. Completed in 1987, the building has 36 floors and stands at 575 ft 0 in (175.26 m). It is home to Convene,[4] AIG Global Real Estate,[5] Goldman Sachs,[6] the New York Regional Office of the United States Census Bureau,[7] and the ground floor houses the New York City Fire Department (FDNY) Engine Company 4 and Ladder Company 15.

this one is in greenwich village --- cnn's anderson cooper renovated it and lives there

it's rather unusual in that it is a fire patrol station

those were run by a consortium of insurance companies to protect property

surprisingly, this service was just recently disbanded -- more on all that:

Those are very cool buildings! Thanks for posting that. Most people detest those architectural styles from the 60s and 70s but I'm confident it will ultimately hold a special place in or hearts and in historical memory.

^ a few things from that most unfortunate 1960s-70s era will hold special places, like the loring greenway in downtown mpls for a random example off the top of my head, but far and wide most of the structures like that fire station are utter crap that will rightly be leveled and rebuilt over. or at least i would hope so. however, none of us alive today have a say on that!
