The Fire Watchtower in Marcus Garvey Park Is Preparing To Undergo A $4 Million Renovation

From NYDN:

“The cast-iron fire watchtower — the only one remaining of eight that constituted Manhattan’s emergency alert system before the days of fire alarm boxes — has been ignored for decades.

The Parks Department, Borough President Scott Stringer and Councilwoman Inez Dickens will each contribute more than $1 million to help rebuild the deteriorating landmark.

“It’s the only remaining cast-iron watchtower in the United State of America,” said Manhattan Borough Parks Commissioner William Castro, whose office plans to spend $1.1 million on the project. “It’s a unique phenomenon in New York City.”
