prior to L-10's disbanding at the end of 1975 it would interchange Friday nites with L-11.When there one evening I heard talk about making L-10  second section of L-11 positioning the apparatus in the space behind E-28 . Needless to say that the rumor-mill that told me that that evening circa 1974 was wrong.

Wasn't there a Manhattan engine (maybe E6 or E10) that was also deployed to East N.Y. Engine 225? ???
Yes ENG*10 for a period went to ENG*225 in the old qtrs on Liberty Ave & Ashford St until around the time 332 was established there....also 193 at 103 was LAD*10 but at times LAD*15 was used.

I believe 133 Truck was formed in the late 1990s, 1998 maybe?  Typo?

Anyone interested in the early history of the volunteer firemen in lower Manhattan in the 1800's should get a copy of "As You Pass By" published in 1952 by Kenneth H. Dunshee, it's pretty interesting.

When that book was released all members of the FDNY received one courtesy of some insurance company. At the last pages of the book was photos of Manhattan firehouses that were active at the time of publishing. Wish I knew where mine went after all of these years.

 I believe Ladder 133 was added in 1998 due to the increased amount of fire activity in that Jamaica Queens section of NYC. Around that time, I think E275 and L133 had been Number 1 on the Runs and Workers list.

Ladder 133 had originally been planned to be quartered with Engine 206 in Brooklyn, 85 years earlier, but that did not happen.
Several site members recall seeing old Engine 206 on Metropolitan Ave being lettered for Ladder 133.
