Feb. 21, 1957: “Powerful streams are concentrated on the fire in structure between Broome and Spring Streets,” read the published caption on a photo of a Manhattan fire. The five-story brick building “contained large quantities of baled textile remnants.” Photo: Neal Boenzi/The New York Times Old Schools, Vintage Firefighters, Manhattan Fire, Neal Boenzi Th, Fire Fighter, New York Times, Photo, Neal Boenzith, Schools Fire
Larry Browne is a volunteer firefighter in Doylestown and the company photographer, originally from Long Island. He photographed a memorial service there for firefighter Capt. Thomas Moody, who was killed at the World Trade Center on 9/11. There were 26 ladder trucks forming 13 arches with flags. Browne asked a few of the firefighters about the tribute, and they told him that they planned on doing the same thing at the services for all of the members of the FDNY who lived in Suffolk County.
