A sad day is Flatiron history. This Sunday marks the 55th Anniversary of the 23rd Street Fire that occurred  on October 17th, 1966. Prior to 9/11, this was the deadliest day in  <a target="_blank" href="http://instagram.com/fdny">@fdny</a>history. 12 firefighters lost their lives battling a fire at Wonder Drug Store at the corner of 23rd Street and Broadway when the building collapsed. 

To honor the legacy, bravery and heroism of the 12 firefighters, there will be a memorial service Sunday morning. A plaque honoring the twelve fallen heroes can be found  on the building’s facade.

We will never forget the 12 firefighters who lost their lives that day. We’d like to take this moment to thank and salute the brave men and women who protect our communities.
