2021 west st - first apt of my grandparents 90 yrs ago. newly built in 1925. What kind of heating was used in the home then?

Asked by Karen Mahnk, Brooklyn, NY Tue Jan 15, 2013

Was it coal, fireplace or gas/oil furnace I wonder? Did each apartment have their own thermostat or was it shared pipes - or vents in the floor? from South Florida. I can't imagine what a coal furnace would be like in a duplex that was new in 1925.
