It is disturbing to encounter a Firebox which adjures one to appeal to extra dimensional entities for succor and assistance, but this unit found on Astoria Blvd. South and the equivalent of 72nd street does just that. The Grand Central parkway to its back, this scarlet scion stands alongside St. Michael’s Cemetery.
