Lonely Planet review

Rarely has a building been placed in a more appropriate place: the fire department’s school stands on the very spot where the 1871 fire began – between Clinton and Jefferson Sts. Although there’s no word on whether junk mail still shows up for Mrs O’Leary, the academy trains firefighters so they’ll be ready the next time somebody, or some critter, kicks over a lantern.
