Brian Murray Way

It was drizzling when the bomb squad van pulled up to Penn Station to pick us up for the trip to the West Village, a joy ride for my grandchildren with lights and sirens to part traffic. We were the guests of honor, there to co-name Charles Street Police Officer Brian Murray Way to honor a member of the bomb squad killed in the line of duty on September 11, 1976. Now it was 2014 . . . bomb trucks lined the curb, their doors open, exposing robots and remote-control devices."
