Ancient Fire Station in New York

Biceps and I have been keeping a secret from all of you, dear readers.
We want to start a family. Let’s be honest-I’m gettin’ old.
But in order to do that, we knew we had to make some radical changes. Biceps went back to school, got his EMT certification and is on the path to become one of Oklahoma’s finest Firemen.
Mustache and all.

He is volunteering at a local station in Oklahoma while we’re home. But financially-it’s just that-a volunteer position. While we are pursuing this career switch and waiting on a paid position, we are still touring around with stinky bands. Due to all of this, our little eyes have become more keen on fire stations around the country.

 

This fire station (built in 1895) is one of the oldest and hottest fire stations in New York. Tee hee.

 

It’s been converted into a venue-which is why we were here with the band.

 

Our fire stations back home are mostly made out of the same thing that our churches, cattle yards and strip malls are built out of-gigantic metal buildings with absolutely no character.

 

Nothing like this.
Bicep’s mustache grew an extra centimeter just laying his eyes on this here station. And my heart skips a beat thinking about the possibility of our life being somewhat “normal” and pro-creating. So, my dear readers-there you have it: our big secret. I know you’ve all been wondering about us and why we’ve waited for so long. Wonder no more…

      So the cat you’d keep, but get rid of the dogs-I get that. But, the kids….well, I don’t have any of my own…so I won’t judge. :)
      NYC is pretty awesome. We love each of our visits there, but are always thankful to get back to the sweet midwest people!

    Hi – it’s my first time visiting your blog, and I enjoy this post about the awesome old firehouse. You, by NO means look like you’re “gettin old,” but I didn’t decide to have babies until I was 30 – before that, I never even considered it…I had a pug (she is very cat and child-like) and that was more than enough responsibility for me. I hope everything works out for you and you’re able to find the place where you want to settle down soon.
    Take Care!

    absolutely love these pictures. architecture from days gone by. people took a pride in craftsmanship and design once and it’s a shame some of these strcutures sit vacant. that’s cool that it’s a venue though!
