FDNY HISTORY/TRIVIA QUESTION #5
« on: January 23, 2010, 04:53:48 PM »
With the appointment of the new Fire Commissioner and the new Chief of Department, I thought I would do an FDNY Trivia Quiz about past officeholders.   This is the fifth of  a six (6) part series.  I will post the question or poll and question, one question every day, and give you a chance to respond in a two day period.  Official answers will be posted  after 48 hours.
