Preservationists are alarmed, but fireboat house to be rebuilt

As seen in this photo from last week, at right, the fireboat stationhouse on the finger pier at Gansevoort Peninsula’s northwest corner is being demolished to make way for a new, modern facility.

During the construction, the fireboat will temporarily be stationed at Pier 40 at W. Houston St.
