    The firefighter asleep in the rotunda, looked so young and the pictures of the older ones outside, really touched my heart!

    I love Firemen! I'm from NJ and strongly object to the many closing of Firehouses there and in NYC, that has been going on for quite a few years now!

    Solidarity Forever!

      When I was a single lady living in the East Village, I used to shop at the Key Food on Avenue A, and this local engine company of firefighters would shop there too.  They'd pull up outside in their truck and when they came in the store, all the women (myself included) and gay guys would swoon!

      And yes, it's a shame about the closing of the firehouses and forced reduction of firefighters in our states. In fact, there was a terrible fire in Flatbush, Brooklyn not even 2 weeks ago that left over 100 people homeless, one person dead and many firefighters injured, and the UFA says that the delay in responding to that inferno was a direct result of reduced FDNY staffing.

      All we can do is hope -- and vote -- for the better!
