That American LaFrance went to E 248 when the dept. made the two companies swap rigs.  Thought was that E 244 needed the covered Mack for more protection.  E 248 ultimately got their Mack back when E 244 was disbanded.

If not an exact match for Nedick's, the New England hot dog bun would be close.  Anyone know if these can be found in the City?

They sell them in the stores. Pepperidge Farm makes them. They call them top sliced hot dog buns. Probably other brands too. I have never seen them at any vendors I have been too.

You're right, Frank, Pepperidge Farm makes a top sliced bun, but they're not as good as the ones I remember (maybe I just don't have the right toaster).  But they're NOT New England hot dog buns . . . the are the Howard Johnson hot dog buns, also used for the Howard Johnson clam roll (boy they were good).

 I believe the photo above is site member "mack", aka Joe M's, father, who played a large part in writing up a plan for the FDNY to deal with civil unrest which was occurring frequently throughout certain parts of NYC. It was quite an extensive plan with many pages. I've been told that plan is still in use today as FDNYs - All Units Circular # 138 (?).

 Very often firefighters were pelted with rocks and bottles. Even shot at and things like refrigerators thrown from roof tops in an attempt to injure members of the FDNY.

Dad was a BC in the 38th from '68 - '77. Shortly after they moved to St. John's Pl. he was promoted to Provisional DC as there was no list in place. He held that rank until he passed away in April of '78. I spent a lot of time at 1472 Bergen St. between '68 and '77 where I rode with the battalion as well as the engine. Many great memories of that old firehouse, lot's of fires and I got to watch many amazing war years firemen doing what they did best ... battling the 'Red Devil'. I was appointed to E 234 in August of 1981 and was fortunate enough to work with many of the firemen who I rode with before getting on the job. I wish I could do it all over again!

Thank you Mack for posting those photos of the house on Bergen street from back in the late 60's. I enjoy looking back!
