This ISN'T about me. This isn't my story. It's a chronicle of an earlier era in the FDNY and of those who worked during that era, in an area covered by the 5th, 6th & 7th Divisions of that day, an area that included Harlem and the South Bronx.I've tried to be as honest as possible, as that and earlier eras need to be defended today. Rules were bent, but the job got done and done extremely well. The members were highly professional about the work, but irreverent about everything else. An internal Unit discipline was enforced by a relentless peer pressure.Firehouse humor was intensely politically incorrect, but it was a time when people of different backgrounds, with differing views came together to do a difficult, dangerous, often thankless job. This is an accounting of those very memorable times and the many amazing firefighters who worked them.
