Muralist who depicts heroes’ latest creation honors fallen firefighter

He’s a muralist who depicts New York City heroes. This time he brings to life Firefighter Steven Pollard, killed Sunday in a fall from the Mill Basin Bridge while helping crash victims.

Kenny Altidor of Canarsie worked through the night on this latest mural, a 4×6 foot mural of Firefighter Pollard of Ladder 170 on Rockaway Parkway, which was presented Wednesday night, Jan. 9, before the wake at the Marine Park Funeral home.

“I usually take a week to finish one of these, but I worked through the night to finish this one,” Altidor said, still putting the finishing touches on Pollard’s likeness.
