Like nearly all fireboxes, this one was red. But I used my special powers as a trans woman to have it painted purple. And the white lettering sure does look nice on it, don't you think?
All right, I confess: I had nothing to do with it. But some people who know me might actually believe I made it happen, or even that I painted it myself. After all, it is my favorite color!
(The firebox is on the southwest corner of 29th Street and 28th Avenue in Astoria.)
