Memorial to the World Trade Center and The Heroes of New York
Earlier this year, DuBarry brought us a box that was an overview of the lower New York Harbor. At the time it was first presented I thought that there were other boxes that were more important to our catalog and I did not purchase it. We already had a number of boxes representing New York. Never did I dream that it would become a commemoration of New York as it was prior to that infamous day in September. Shortly after September 11 DuBarry contacted me again about the box. I didn't really remember it and although I ordered it, because requests for just such a box were already pouring in, when it arrived I felt that it was flat and uninteresting with none of the drama that I wanted it to have. I called DuBarry and they agreed to make some changes in the box. What you see here, now, is the result. Spectacular, isn't it? Additionally they did several other boxes on the same theme and those are also shown here along with a box that we had made especially for us, a tribute to all of The Heroes of New York.

New York City fire truck
with the hose neatly placed for quick access and all of the pumping equipment
they use in place on the side of the truck. Up top the flashing lights
and siren equipment. Notice that the cab portion of the truck is large
to hold the
whole crew. Gone are the days when they flew down the street hanging on
to the sides of the truck adding to the danger that they faced each time
to a call. Inside the box, a tiny fire hat, dimensional and removable.
These have to be the bravest men in the world with a desire to help people
time of need that surpasses anything that we ordinary mortals can imagine.
They risk their lives for us every day of their working lives and we so
think about it excepting when a September 11th occurs. I for one will never
forget the sight of them that nightmare day. Heaven only knows how many
more would have
been lost but for these incredibly courageous men. Retail: About $271.00.
