In 1888 the architectural firm of Napoleon LeBrun & Son began work on the station house for Engine Company 56 at 120 West 83rd Street, New York City. The five-story mix of Romanesque Revival and Renaissance Revival elements was completed the following year. The building became home to Engine Company 74 when that company moved from its old home at 207 West 77th Street after Engine Company 56 was disbanded. Engine Company 74 lost six of its men - Matthew Barnes, John Collins, Kenneth Kumpel, Robert Minara, Joseph Rivelli Jr. and Paul Ruback--in the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.
