The "Tin House" in the Bronx was on Boston Rd just south of E. 169 St and housed E85 and L59 or 859, a combo of 85 and 59 which is what I think is on your patch.

It is an EMS station now. L59 moved west to E43 in 1978 and E85 was disbanded to reform L53 in 1985 or 86.

E 36 was disbanded a few years back.  Last quarters were on 125th Street, off Park Avenue.  They moved into the former quarters of L 14 when L 14 moved into a new house with E 35.  Prior to that, E 36 was on Park Avenue around 126 or 127 Street.

Wake - If you go to this thread, "Fabulous Firehouses become Homes and Businesses" in the "History" section, section 4 of the thread has info about about the Tin House as well as other former firehouses still standing but currently in use for other purposes.

I am not sure about the origin of the posted 85/59 patch but i do know that there was a patch manufacturer awhile back who made up his own design for patches of Companies that did not have one & sold them internationally to people who thought they were "official" patches of the Unit.
