Foliated in the manner of some medieval “green man”, this FDNY alarm box clings to it’s mount at the corner of Woodside and 38th avenues. A vestigial back alley rudely forgotten beside the tracks of the LIRR, it sits squarely at the center of an angle between the neighborhoods of Woodside and Sunnyside- a place which is neither here nor there, between tick and tock.
