When accessing the New York City Fire Museum's homepage through the Lynx browser, there is some extraneous unhelpful text referring to images that comes up first. However, within four lines you get to the main navigation information so it could be a lot worse. Farther down the page, though, you come across a few forms that are usually hidden on the homepage. These forms are distracting and confusing for those using Lynx.
