What is this part/cover?
I inspected a 4 unit building and on each of the steam boilers there was rust around this part.

Thanks!
Josh

What size are you? ;-)

It's probably access to the heat exchanger tubes in the fire box.

Looks like the tank-less/domestic hot water coil - not in use. They are a poor design and fail long before the boilers fail. They are found on the low end builders models - saving money on the hot water tank or water heater and paying the most possible for hot water production.
