In honor of fireman Thomas G. Taylor, who in 1981 lost his life battling a fire at this site, Christina Ulke sought to create a memorial with an artistic expression. This project consists of two components. A bronze memorial plaque commemorating Thomas G. Taylor wraps around the corner of the building and includes an image of his son rendered as a line drawing cast in relief. Near the interior garage entrance of the building, an etching from a photographic negative on porcelain enamel is accompanied by a thoughtful statement from Fire Station 60, who responded to the fire, and also documents the tragic events that took place.
