Red Area? Well, on the morning of 6/1/2001, this certainly was a red area! Blazing red and orange, and believe me, the fire engines definitely violated the 4 hour parking limit. The wind must have kept the flames away from the front side of the apartment house fronting on 46th Street, but it positively roasted the rear outer wall. At least one newspaper vending box knows where to hide in order to keep from getting hit by vehicles. The north facing Colossi of CrossHere-Non stand guard over the site, mute witnesses to one of the more interesting blazes in Queens history.
