Uptown hot spot, Nobu Fifty Seven, was filled with a number of supportive citizens who came together last Thursday, January 28, to celebrate the FDNY’s 150 years of service.

Throughout the evening, a round of heartfelt memories about the heroic acts of New York’s bravest were shared, and a lot of love certainly filled the room. Renowned actor, Robert De Niro spoke about the close calls he had with fire, and saluted to the FDNY and their efforts. His wife, Grace Hightower De Niro, along with philanthropist Somer Farkas, and Commissioner Daniel Nigro, who have started a Ladies for the New York Fire Department, were also in attendance, as were Jonathan Farkas, Hiro Tahara, Amy Fine Collins, Erik George, and more. The event also raised funds for the development of a PBS Treasures of New York documentary about the FDNY.
