On City Island, an eerie relic of FDNY campaign
Photo by Rolando Pujol
Remnants of an old FDNY safety campaign survive on Tier Street on City Island. These haunting stickers were pasted to the side of fire alarm call boxes, and years of weather and sun have taken their toll. But you can still make out a large "Stop" sign, and the wording "False Alarms Cause Death." The image of a firefighter, flames behind him as he carries a baby, is eerie.
It's a powerfully effective campaign, made even more so by the sticker's derelict state.
