This firebox (which is pronounced as “Fy-Ur-Bochs” by the locals) was from somewhere on the northern side of Astoria, a heavily residential section whose fence posts are adorned with a concrete bestiary. This servant of all that is safe stands guard over king and castle, ready to cry loudly that help is required from the highly skilled folks who ride around the City in shiny red trucks.
