An ongoing catalog of New York’s endangered Fireboxes.

The scarlet still stands in Hunters Point, although the neighborhood is unrecognizable.

Pepsi is long gone, as are National Sugar, the LIRR Power House, and the Daily News- but a noble firebox still stands at the ready. Here, in the capital of “wiping away the old New York” and “changing the skyline forever,” there is at least a single pole star of continuity. Rock on firebox, rock on.
