Fire Box at West 138th Street

The fire box at West 138th Street is typical in design, with a torch surmounting the call box and call buttons for the fire department and police.  The pink paint scheme is unusual and unlikely to be original.

There are several hundred scattered throughout the city , many of which are no longer operative.  Another stands at the southeast corner of East 60th Street and Fifth.
