Our day started with a trip to Kinko's and then the F.D.N.Y.
station on 8th Avenue. Engine 54, Truck 4, Battalion 9. The crew
from this station had helped Dave with many segments on the show.
On September 11, they lost 15 members. Sharon knocked on the door and explained why we were there. We
were let into the station to take pictures of their pole that was
used in a Top Ten List and the station. There were a couple
of memorials. I took a picture of one and was about ready to take
a picture of the other when Sharon showed me a handwritten sign
on the side of this formal memorial. The sign read simply "No
Photos Please" and I was able to keep from taking what was
not meant to be. Near the end of our visit, the ladder truck returned with a large
crew. Pictures all around with some other tourists that happened
by. The generosity of time and interest by the men was amazing.
We will never forget.
