FDNY Rescue 4 in Prospect Heights

Drew Smith passed along this message from Matthew Gray:

With the 10 year anniversary of 9/11 right around the corner … it is a pretty cool thing that a piece of history from that day is here in Prospect Heights.  The original rig of FDNY Res4cue is at Fries Automotive.  Little history on that day Res4cue responded with 8 members and returned with none.  So of course Fries would love anyone to come by and take a look.  It is in rough shape but still a piece of fire history none the less.
