Does anybody know what the background is on the black striping and lettering?  I personally think it looks rather ugly. When I 1st read couple people posting about it I thought it was just something special and would be removed but I look at the pictures above it definitely looks permanent.

I didn't know E-43 had it.  I assumed the black was to match the black hoods that S.O.C. seems to prefer.

Very cool! I like the Richmond on the side, Squad 1 has Brooklyn on their door. And I like the originated date on the side compartment. Exciting stuff
For a long time SI units, dispatcher, boxes, radio, voice alarm were called "Richmond".  In the 1980s, designations became "Staten Island" which was the common geographical name.  Now we have a return to "Richmond" which was the historical borough name.

Under the 1898 City Charter adopted by the New York State Legislature, a "borough" is a municipal corporation that is created when a county is merged with populated areas within it. - wikipedia

The borough contiguous with Bronx County is The Bronx.

County agencies, such as the courts, are subdivisions of the State of New York.
Boroughs are subdivisions of the City of New York.

Boroughs have limited administrative functions.
State agencies operate at county level.
