It is Heating Up Out Here!

July 18th, 2012

This morning came early as I decided to ride to the northernmost reaches of Manhattan. My 1st stop was to the 30th Police Precinct. Two Police Heroes, George and Rod met with me at the front counter. George was enthused about my ride to say the least and asked many great questions. It was a joy to stop here. I visited the 33rd Police Precinct as well and talked with Community Affairs Officer Robinson. She was such a delight to talk with. I loved when she said, “We just don’t see people doing stuff like this for us.” That was all I needed to hear today. It made me feel good about what I am doing but bittersweet that Heroes aren’t appreciated enough.
My 1st Firehouse visit was at the W161st Street Firehouse and they got a call in the middle of our meeting as did the Firehouse on W181st Street and the Vermilyea Avenue Firehouse as well. The Firehouse on W170th Street had fought a huge blaze by Yankee Stadium last night. I guess when it heats up these guys get busier than their already busy schedule.
The photo I used today was taken mid-morning and it was hot already! I think the expression on my face says it all, where is the nearest lawn sprinkler I can ride The Kindness Bicycle through?
