  • Parking around FDNY firehouses?

    Anyone mind sharing what parking is like around FDNY firehouses (as far as a FF going in for their shift)?

    Is there a specific area for FFs only to ensure youre not searching for parking for 30min+? If not, what is the alternative?

    Do a lot of FFs commute via mass transit?

    Just a curious candidate that is on the current list (OC exam 7001). Trying to weigh options of where I might move to if/when I get on the dept. - obviously the travel to/from the firehouse is a viable logistical concern.


    Thank you for your time, and the input is much appreciated.

    That varies immensely from firehouse to firehouse and boro to boro. Some places have huge lots, some have street parking. About the only sure bet is that most places from central park south, don't have lots and you're street parking. We can park in front of the house and you're not going to spend any time looking for parking.

    Almost no one uses mass transit from out side of the city regularly, especially when OT is down and details are high.

    This should probably be among the last thing you look for in a house, along with do they cook good meals and how are the beds.

      I think if I was going to a NYC firehouse, I'd park my car in Ohio so it would be safe...

        I appreciate the response Harlemtruck. I've been considering moving to Rockland County, and if I were to go through with that, I would want to attempt to get placed in the BX. So then I'm googling random BX firehouses to ensure I'd be able to drive to a firehouse and park. The info is very helpful.

        Yeah, not too concerned about food or beds - had my share of lower qualities of those two things, thanks to my few yr stent in the military. But that's irrelevant.
        I'm coming in fresh with an open mind. Looking forward to learning a whooooole lot.
