“Four of my uncles were on the NYPD and it was the despair of my father that I never made it. I tried. I went to Delahanty’s school for prospective policemen, and I applied for the force year after year. But I was a runt — 5 feet 9 and 130 pounds — they always turned me away. ‘Try the Fire Department,’ they told me.”
