Fire Escape Stairs





These are typical fire escape stairs in Manhattan. They consist of a number of horizontal platforms, one at each story of a building, with ladders or stairs connecting them. The apartment buildings pictured at the top are located at First Avenue between 74th and 75th Streets. The photo at the bottom is the fire escape at Serafina Restaurant on Madison Avenue at 79th Street. Here is the link to a previous post on fire escape stairs in Lower Manhattan. http://nyclovesnyc.blogspot.com/2011/05/fire-escape-stairs-of-canal-street-and.html
