FDNY - Pride of Midtown #4 Heading into action

    Newer Older

    "Whatever the Americans are proud of - whatever they consider to be particularly good, useful, brilliant, or characteristic of themselves or their climate, they designate, half in jest, though scarcely half in earnest, as an "institution."  Thus the memory of George Washington... is an institution; . . . Pumpkin (or Punkin) pie is an institution; and the firemen of New York are a great institution."  ~Charles Mackay, Life and Liberty in America, 1850
    Watched these heroes quietly and calmly prepare for the unexpected. G-d Bless Them. This is in midtown Manhattan on 43rd Street & 6th Avenue just East of Broadway. Not just the "Pride of Midtown" but also a source of pride of Manhattan and NYC.
