If memory serves me right Sq1 was first up day by day at E46,E88 & E45. the hrs were from around 3pm to 12 or 1am. then returned E46's old qtrs to respond on a/h's in the boro. I think L58(L27-2) was still there for a short time until their house was built next to E45.

   Bread trucks? "Bread" vans were actually the second generation of Squad vehicles.  The first original Squads were assigned 1940 Mack L hosewagons that had inward facing bench seats installed in the hosebeds. After the hosewagons came four 1958 International S-150 "Metro" vans bulit on parcel delivery truck chassis' and one more in 1960. In 1962, 4 more newer and larger International vans were delivered and in 1963 the last International van type Squad apparatus was delivered.

Great comprehensive list.  Under Squad 4, the battalion with Engine 231 is the 44, not 34.

Squad 2..  I have shirts around that still say squad 2 on them. 
The old man worked squad 2 during the 1970's prior to it closing down.
Can we get a scan or photo on here to see one????

RIP SQUAD 5. Many do not know how busy the Lower East Side & Alphabet City once was back in the 60's thru early 70's.   28/11 and 17/18 were in the top 25 a few times.

Yes, I do remember how busy those lower East Side Companies were. It was about one square mile of heavy fire activity. That 28/11, 17/18, and Batt 4 were right up with those busy South Bronx, Browsville, Bed-Sty, and busy Harlem companies. They were "Top Shelf outfits too".
