FDNY Mural, in the East Village

FDNY Mural, EV
Photo by myself, somewhere in the East Village.

Somewhere in the East Village, a mural showing a fireman against a city skyline is painted on a roll-down door. The text reads:'We salute the heroes of NYC. Thank you FDNY.'

Dedications to 9/11 are randomly sprinkled throughout the city. In every neighborhood you can encounter mosaics adorning street lights, and painted walls. The tragedy affected so many ordinary New Yorkers, their relatives, friends and neighbors.

I'm not sure what the cutouts are in the rolldown door? Sometimes people cut holes in the door to use as makeshift mail slots.

I like it too... I like your pictures... I love to take pictures too-in a photo-journalistic kind of way, but often feel a bit reluctant to whop out my biggish digital SLR camera incase I make people feel uncomfortable... What camera do you use...? and do you ever feel reluctant to get it out in certain situations? Thanks... Maxine :-)
