Sunnyside is well named, as it is quite bright on this south east facing slope of that ridge which rises from Northern Blvd. to an artificial apex at Queens Blvd. and which slouches roughly toward the alluvial plain surrounding Newtown Creek.

This out of service alarm box, (part of a growing population of inert sentinels in Western Queens)cares little for the emanations cascading down from the burning thermonuclear eye of god itself, and despite its neutered status maintains vigil.
