Fire Escape Stairs In SoHo And Chinatown


Fire escape stairs are a unique feature of some old multiple-story residential buildings in many cities including New York City. Typical New York styles are pictured above in SoHo and along Canal Street. A Special kind of emergency exit mounted to a building exterior, the fire escape consists of a numerous horizontal platforms made of steel gratings, one for each story of a building, with steel ladders connecting them.
