Project Firebox 48

At the farthest corner of noble Astoria lies the hulking remains of the Poletti Power Plant, as well as the somewhat archaic Bowery Bay Sewage Treatment facility. Slung in a manner unceremonious, this Firebox adorns its mount in good standing. Whether serving residences or industrial zones, the Fireboxes of New York City stand constant vigil, no matter how hot or cold it gets.
