Also in the mid 1980's, 21 Truck in Hell's Kitchen switched from a rear-mount to a tower ladder.

Not sure of when This happened thinking late 80s early 90s but TL29 switched rigs with L50 who had a rearmount. Maybe other members can be more specific as to reasons, also remember that TL50 had received a 95 tower and swapped that rig with TL51 due to turning radius out of quarters being tight so they became a 75 tower again.
Did any other Ladder Companies revert to aerial ladders after having tower ladders, like L29?
Yes,
 L84 on Staten Island

Ladder 84 had a tower ladder until 2001.
 
     

TL 76 (Tottenville), TL 84 (Huguenot), TL 85 (New Dorp), TL 86 (Bulls Head) and TL 87 (Annadale) - were all tower ladders and covered more than half of SI with then only non-tower ladder was L 82 (Great Kills), which had a rearmount.  Ladder 84 was assigned a 2001 Seagrave rearmount.

  That happened after the big fire next to Rescue 1's firehouse.

  It looks like 21 got TL138's 1979 Mack TL (#MT7908) right after 138 had received a new 1984 Mack TL (#MT8412). Then in 1986, TL21 got a brand new 1985 Mack TL #MT8504. :)

  Makes me wonder if they had kept E11 in service until the new E. 2nd St. firehouse a couple of blocks away was completed. Would it have been Engine 11 Ladder 11 instead of E28 L11? ???
