Bushwick Photo du Jour: Himrod Street

Many are the civil servants who shoulder the onerous responsibility of protecting and serving us New Yorkers. I have issues with most of them, but there is one institution I have the utmost respect for: New York’s Bravest. Not only do these men and women risk life and limb in situations beyond my comprehension, they also have a wonderful sense of humor.

Case in point: Ladder 124 in Bushwick

Adder 1

They’re Tonka tough with Tonka Trucks


and have mad Scrabble skills to boot!

I wonder if the windows qualify as double word scores?

  4. I always get in trouble when I try to play Scrabble words diagonally. Good for them.

  6. For a look at other FDNY fire company logos, check out this link. I’ve set it to the Brooklyn display, but you can see all five boroughs on the home page.
