Today is another anniversary. The 23rd Street Fire took place on October 17, 1966, in New York City. Twelve FDNY Firefighters were killed in the Line of Duty after the floor collapsed, the largest loss of life in the department’s history until 9/11.
A new FDNY Pro Film is all about one of the many stories of the lasting impact of the 23rd Street Fire. The film is narrated by longtime supporter of the FDNY Foundation, Rosanna Scotto.
FDNY Pro Films is being made possible thanks to support from the FDNY Foundation. FDNY Pro Films is the latest way in which the FDNY is reaching new audiences around the world.
Special Screenings at the New York City Fire Museum are available October 17-21. Check with the Museum for showtimes.
NOTE: This film is also available to FDNY Pro subscribers. Proceeds support the lifesaving mission of the FDNY and FDNY Foundation.
