What is the purpose of the long metal rod extending out from my fire escape?
The fire escape off the brownstone in Gowanus that I just moved into has a long metal pole extending out from the fire escape on the 2nd floor and another on the 3rd floor. They’re about 5 feet long, anchored to the railing in two spots, and have hooks on the end. I can’t figure out what they’re for, and Googling didn’t help. Does anyone on here know? Thanks!
