It’s All Happening at the Zoo

September 15th, 2012

9-15-12The Bronx Zoo is smack dab in the middle of the Bronx. A good part of my ride today was along its western and southern border. The streets of central Bronx were crowded with residents as I made my way to 5 Firehouses and 1 Police Precinct.
Ain, Carlton and Justin, three Firefighters at the Walton Avenue Firehouse, which has Engine 75 and Ladder 33 had me in for a very long visit. They are having a benefit for one of their own who gave his life in the line of duty in October. It is one event I certainly won’t miss.
Two Firehouses I visited today, had just arrived back from practice drills they had worked. The drill was at the Bronx Zoo. I never did find out what type of drill.
