TL 117 should be Second Due, TL 163 would probably be next up.

OK Thanks Everyone for the quick responses. L-117 is over a mile away. 1.50 miles. Not too many truck companies my side of town.

With all the construction from 39th Avenue to Queens Plaza, I can't believe that doesn't justify brining back Engine 261!

So that's what concerns me. If 117 has a Job east of Quarters or North having T-163 Come in from Woodside just strains what we have.  At every corner here new housing just springs up. Its a huge risk I feel. You think a relocation of a Truck company would be considered?

It is a longer ride, 5 miles plus, for Ladder 137 to far west Rockaway.

So if the City did decide to put a truck company in this area , what the best Location ? 312 ? E-260 What about the Foam second piece. E-263 , OR would they consider Roosevelt Island ? Maybe 262 Seeing it is the closest to the Island ?

I wouldn't think that they would place a solo truck on the Island. Reason; if there's a job on the Island what is the truck going to do getting in first and have the citizenry yelling "..do something." It would be a problem without and engine in a new house with them. JMHO
