Stored Apparatus is Gone!!!
« on: September 14, 2017, 03:11:27 PM »
The 100+ retired trucks and engines that were stored in Maspeth at 58 St and 55 ave are gone. The entire yard is cleaned out. This includes the Buildings Unit. Does anyone know where they moved to???

The city sold the property, the former NYC*EMS headquarters, in 2014. They were on a temporary lease until the property owner needed it. Home Depot bought part of the Coca-Cola facility that surrounds the site in August for $70 million. I wonder if that had anything to do with it.

I know they've been looking for a large warehouse to keep these trucks in for quite a while, especially one that would be resistant to hurricane damage and flooding. Maybe they found one?

Here's an article from 2014, which failed because the Neighborhood Association did not want it in their neighborhood: http://sunnysidepost.com/op-ed-say-no-to-the-fire-departments-plans-to-use-43rd-street-location
