Thank you to all those brave firefighters! Maybe an issue of concern is that in the afternoon, Northern blvd and 37th ave are heavily congested due to all the double parked vehicles. This can mean slower respond time for the FDNY and EMTs. Hopefully the city council can do something about that will clear up those two roads.
