This fire escape is located in tbe building I grew up in. It was off my bedroom. My mother is still there but I just wanted a keepsake of where I spent many city nights. My father was a cop so my brothers and I weren't allowed out much. This was my "escape" and I would sit there at night staring at the one visible star I could see.
