INVITATION TO THE PUBLIC
PLEASE NOTE UPDATE TO OPENING HOURS:
This Sunday, from 3-6 PM, our firefighter portrait gallery at 2012-24 East Arizona Street will be open to honor Lt. Robert P. Neary, 60, and Firefighter Daniel Sweeney, 25 both assigned to Ladder 10 at Kensington and Castor Avenues. Beverages and light refreshments will be served.
At 6:00 PM the Gallery will close so all can attend:
A VIGIL FOR THE FALLEN and INJURED FIREFIGHTERS and ALL THOSE IMPACTED BY THIS DISASTER
WHERE: Site of the fire, Between York and Boston Street by Jasper
WHEN: SUNDAY, APRIL 15th, 2012 6PM
Following the vigil, the gallery will re-open and remain open until 10pm.
On display are a number of large scale oil portraits of FDNY firefighters and officers, including Lt. Dennis Mojica who perished on 9/11 in the service of his country. The gallery is located at 2012-24 East Arizona Street between Coral and Emerald, just two blocks from the tragic fire scene where the two firefighters lost their lives fighting the massive Thomas Buck Hosiery Building Fire on Monday, April 9th. Losing these men is a reminder to us all that these dedicated public servants have a dangerous job, and put their lives at risk every day to protect our community. We honor them for their commitment and sacrifice, and stand with their families and their fellow firefighters at this difficult time.
