The 3rd Battalion was one of the original battalions established when the department was organized in 1869.  For 87 years it served in the Greenwich Village and Lower Manhattan area.  Commercial, mercantile, industrial buildings and densely spaced and populated loft and tenement buildings posed major fire challenges.  Most fire companies in the battalion had second sections in the early 1900's and were augmented by the high pressure system. 

Manhattan

Battalion 3   Organized   253 Spring St        1869   at Engine 30
Battalion 3   Relocated    47 Marion St         1880   at Engine 20
Battalion 3   Relocated    155 Mercer St       1894   at Ladder 20
Battalion 3   Temporary   84 Attorney St     1903   at Ladder 18
Battalion 3   Relocated    155 Mercer St       1904   at Ladder 20
Battalion 3   Relocated    209 Elizabeth St   1904   at Ladder 9
Battalion 3   Renovated   155 Mercer St      1905   at Ladder 20
Battalion 3   Relocated    243 Lafayette St   1913   at Engine 20
Battalion 3   Relocated    155 Mercer St       1922   at Ladder 20

By 1956, many lower Manhattan engine companies were closed, while some moved to Harlem and Bronx.  An additional battalion was needed in the South Bronx and Battalion 3 was no longer needed in lower Manhattan.  The original battalion numbering plan had Battalions 1 through 20 assigned from south to north from lower Manhattan to the Bronx.  Battalions 21 through 23 were already established in Staten Island, so the original numerical plan was preserved by Battalion 3 retained its identity as it moved north.  Division 2 also moved to the Bronx, however it was renumbered as Division 6.

Bronx

Battalion 3   Relocated   1213-1215 Intervale Ave   1956   at Engine 82
Battalion 3   Relocated   1226 Seneca Ave              1968   at Engine 94

Bronx Battalion 3 also had a second section that became Battalion 27.

Battalion 3-2   Organized   1226 Seneca Ave              1968   at Engine 094
Battalion 3-2   Disbanded   to organize Battalion 27    1969

Battalion 19 has been organized twice.  It was the original Marine Battalion, placing all of the fireboats in the same command. 

"Up until 1905, the fireboats were attached to the Battalions in whose districts they lay.  Special Order No. 6, of June 16, 1905, established the 19th Battalion.  It read:  By direction of the Fire Commissioner, the 19th Battalion, to be composed of Engine Companies Nos. 51, 57, 66, 77, 78, 123 and 132, is hereby organized, to take effect from and after 8 A.M., on the 17th inst., and Chief of Battalion John Kenlon assigned to the command thereof.  He will perform duty while at fires on the fireboats."

Fireboat companies were originally considered as floating engine companies.  As such, they were organized in geographic land battalions along with land engines and ladders.  As the number of fireboats increased, they were separated into their own Marine Division and Marine Battalion.  Over their history, both the Marine Division and the Marine Battalion have been disbanded and reorganized again, separately and alone, as necessary to meet the organizational needs of the time.

Marine Division    Organized        Battery Park, Manhattan                   1908   with Engine 57 Fireboat   
Marine Division    New Station     Pier 1, North River, Manhattan           1941   with Engine 57 Fireboat   
Marine Division    Relocated         Pier A, North River, Manhattan           1960   with Engine 57 Fireboat   
Marine Division    Disbanded                                                             1975      
Marine Division    Reorganized     Pier A, North River, Manhattan           1977   at Marine 1   
Marine Division    Relocated         Building 292, Navy Yard, Brooklyn     1992    with Marine Battalion   
Marine Division    Disbanded                                                             1995

Fireboat companies were originally considered as floating engine companies.  As such, they were organized in geographic land battalions along with land engines and ladders.  As the number of fireboats increased, they were separated into their own Marine Division and Marine Battalion.
 
"The 19th Battalion was then as­signed to the First Division. Four years later it was decided to organize the fireboats as a separate Division and an examination for promotion to the rank of Deputy Chief of the Marine Division was ordered. A re­quirement was that applicants must hold Pilot's and Master's licenses. Chief Kenlon was the only Chief of Battalion who could qualify and, after passing the examination, he was pro­moted to this specific title by Special Order No. 45, of April 12, 1909, being the only officer ever promoted to be Deputy Chief of the Marine Division. Two years later the junior among the Deputy Chiefs, he was first on the list for Chief of Department and became head of the uniformed force on August 1, 1911. The 19th Battalion was discontinued as a marine unit on October 20, 1925. In 1937, on Novem­ber 1st, a Marine Battalion was again established with the organization of the 25th.  WNYF"

Over their history, both the Marine Division and the Marine Battalion have been disbanded and reorganized again, separately and alone, as necessary to meet the organizational needs of the time.

Land fire suppression divisions have been relatively stable with respect to area and number through their history.  Manhattan has typically had three divisions - Lower, Midtown, Upper;  Bronx had two - Southwest and Northeast;  Staten Island had one;  Brooklyn had three - North, South, and East;  and Queens had two - North and South.  For operational and organizational needs, divisions have been added to split busy divisions, and discontinued when demands changed.  Divisions are not necessarily defined by borough political boundaries.  The numbering of some divisions has changed many times while a few divisions have been constant.

Following the history of some divisions by their number will show much movement and relocation.  However, those relocations are usually into another division's quarters where a new number has been assigned.

Division 5 illustrates the apparent movement of one division through three boros (Manhattan, Bronx, and Queens).  In most cases, it was a simple renumbering of an already established division in the same location.  Divisions 3, 4, 6, 13, and 14 have all been known as Division 5 at some time and Division 5 has been the Upper Manhattan, Bronx and Queens divisions in different periods of time.

Division 5 was originally a split of Division 4, covering the Bronx battalions of that division.  A few years later it was renumbered as Division 6.  It was then reorganized as 5, once again splitting Division 4, covering the Upper East Side and Harlem battalions.   In time, Division 5 picked up some South Bronx battalions, eventually becoming a Bronx division covering Southwest Bronx.  Division 5 returned to Harlem in Upper Manhattan while retaining Battalion 19 in the Bronx.  During the War Years, Division 5 covered Harlem and afterwards absorbed Division 4 to cover all of Upper Manhattan.  In the mid 1990's, Division 5 was the Queens division, covering the areas of both Division 13 and Division 14.  When the legacy division numbers were restored, Division 5 was disbanded . . . . . until the next time.

This history follows the history of Divisions numbered 5.

Battalion 51 moved from Engine 294/Ladder 143 on Jamaica Avenue to Lefferts Boulevard at Engine 308 when Battalion 59 was established at Engine 319 in 1984.
When the 59 was disbanded you'd think they would have moved the 51 back to Jamaica Avenue.
With interboro responses, Battalion 28 can cover much of 286 and 291's neighborhoods.
Historically 286 was part of the 37 and 39 battalions into the 1960's, and 291 was in the 35 into the 1950's. 
The 28 at 271 is about one mile closer to 286 than the 51 at 294 would be.
The 28 is also much closer to 291 than the 46.

The 45 barely runs in with 291 and 140 at all. The 28 is much closer.
It goes the other way too with the 45 first due to greenpoint and 238/106. The 28 doesn't even go there 2nd due. the 35 would

Tracing its origins to the Eastern District of the Brooklyn Fire Department, Division 11 has covered northern Brooklyn and Queens.  Initially numbered as Division 7, it was renumbered as Division 11 in 1906. 

Under the original ten division organization in 1906, it covered the Williamsburg area and followed the growth of the department into Long Island City, Astoria and east in Queens.  Although it was eventually split by the 14th Division which covers northern Queens, it retained the 45th Battalion in Long Island City into 1956.
