Picturesque Blaze at Daybreak on the Atlantic Dock, 1900

On September 22, 1900, a fire destroyed $100,000 worth of property in a warehouse and grain elevator. The fire destroyed one warehouse that had been rebuilt after another fire just three months before.
The Red Hook Fire Department fought the blaze, and two fireboats joined the fight: the Robert A. Van Wyck and the Seth Low.
