We saw this as it’s now situated outside the Emigrant Bank near Grand Central station. Very humbling and I guess there is no further description needed or words as the statue and plaques speaks for itself.

Seeing the Kneeling Fireman on 9-11 week was very moving and beautiful. Confused as to its location, as closer to the 9-11 memorial would have seemed more appropriate and easier for others to see, however, I am so glad we stopped and took a moment...More

We found this statue by sheer fate. We were around Rockefeller heading home when we saw this across the street. It is beautiful!

A very nice monument to firefighters, with an interesting history (read the wall plaque to find out more). It won't bring anyone to tears, and its location is off the beaten path, but it's simplicity and honesty make it a worthwhile stop.

We had heard about 'The Kneeling Fireman' so made a special point of visiting this memorial on the last day of our short vacation in New York. The memorial is situated in front of the Emigrant Bank building in 43rd Street between Madison Avenue and...More

Although this monument was commissioned before the 9/11 attack, it has come to symbolize the role of the fire fighter in that tragic event. There is a good information wall plaque and a fireman's payer as part memorial. If you visit Grand Central station don't...More

This kneeling fireman on 43rd street is a tribute to all those very brave men that saved and continue to save countless lives. There is a plaque describing the history and story and does choke you up. Came across this by chance.

I stumbled across this statue while walking to the PABT. It is a powerful and moving statue. There is a plaque that tells the history of the statue and there is also a plaque with the Firefighter's Prayer.
