Fire escapes are a NYC icon that ranks right up there with the water towers. Many NYC residents longingly regard their fire escapes as an additional room. Now you can bring it inside and freshen up your boring bookshelves. This 24-inch-tall shelving unit replicates city fire escapes that are usually found on the sides of older apartment buildings.
It may be frowned upon -- and sometimes illegal -- to place objects like potted plants on outdoor staircases, but not anymore. Just don't expect to fit a chair or BBQ grill.
With three shelves, there’s ample room for knick-knacks, photographs and even some smaller potted plants. Bound to thrill apartment-dwelling urbanites and lovers of all things big city. Made in China.
