Fire Escape

Posted in NYC by Andrew Spender on May 31, 2010

This morass of fire escapes caught my eye in China Town today. Many of the walk-ups in the city have this kind of emergency exit, but these iron stairs and landings adorn the face of a set of buildings with perpendicular iron bars and shuttered doors that, together, create quite a dramatic contrast. I wouldn’t like to rely on their safety in the event of a fire, that’s for sure.
