My NYC Biking Story: Sarinya Srisakul

To kick off Bike Month, Streetfilms is launching a new series today. "My NYC Biking Stories" will bring you short vignettes about people who ride in New York City. The subject of our first profile is Sarinya Srisakul, the city’s first female Asian-American firefighter. Sarinya is one of 31 women among FDNY's 11,000 uniformed officers and firefighters (comprising the largest fire department in the nation). She loves commuting on her bike from Elmhurst, Queens to work at Engine 5 in the East Village. Spend 90 seconds with her in our first bike month profile.
