Random Photo: FDNY Testing Ladder Over Tenements

Our temporary corporate housing overlooks a neat series of tenement-style apartments lining 2nd Avenue, where the MTA also happens to be busy building the new 2nd Avenue subway line. You can clearly see here how two lanes of the avenue have been absorbed by the subway construction.

The Fire Department, from what I could tell, was just testing their ladders — there was no actual rescue or fire or anything.

I like that ladder company 43 – serving this ‘hood and Spanish Harlem – is called El Barrio’s Bravest. And that De La Vega designed the logo.
