Some good news on the plight of Engine 212, or at least the company's former house. NAG and the People's Firehouse, two community groups that have long been active in the Northside, were awarded the development rights for the former 212 firehouse on Wythe. The groups plan a $1.3 million project to convert the building into the Northside Town Hall community center.

(Engine 212, the company, dates to 1869; Engine 212, the building, dates to about 1910 or so.)
