There is just something about an Ahrens Fox with the front mount high pressure pump. They were impressive.

There's more than one reason they were called "The Rolls Royce of fire apparatus".  ;)

1939 Worlds Fair - Flushing Queens

In September 1938, the FDNY 55th Battalion was formed and stationed at the Worlds Fair. Apparatus included 4 new Ahrens Fox pumpers.  The battalion was staffed by three FDNY Battalion Chiefs, fourteen FDNY company officers, and seventy FDNY firefighters.  The battalion had one double engine company and two single engine companies.  Apparatus was assigned to FDNY engine companies after the Worlds Fair closed.  The battalion responded to 237 alarms.  There were 166 fires, and 4 were multiple alarms.

The Ahrens Fox marked 222 was originally 214s rig when they were on Herkimer St. but when 214 moved in with L111 on Halsey St.  the fox could not fit in the narrow FH with the Truck in there so  222 & 214 swapped rigs.

NYC Landmark Preservation Commission - what does it mean for historic FDNY firehouses

     "It means your building has special historical, cultural, or aesthetic value to the City of New York, state or nation, is an important part of the City's heritage and that LPC must approve in advance any alteration, reconstruction, demolition, or new construction affecting the designated building."

History:

     "The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) is the largest municipal preservation agency in the nation. It is responsible for protecting New York City's architecturally, historically, and culturally significant buildings and sites by granting them landmark or historic district status, and regulating them after designation.

     The agency is comprised of a panel of 11 commissioners who are appointed by the Mayor and supported by a staff of approximately 80 preservationists, researchers, architects, historians, attorneys, archaeologists, and administrative employees.

There are more than 36,000 landmark properties in New York City, most of which are located in 141 historic districts and historic district extensions in all five boroughs. The total number of protected sites also includes 1,405 individual landmarks, 120 interior landmarks, and 10 scenic landmarks."
