That many people, 25,000,would warrant 3 engine companies for CFRD alone, not to mention alarms, smells and bells. I will be interesting to see how they handle this. Likely how they are handling the big development in Hell's Kitchen area of Manhattan.

When you factor in 1st-due responses to Roosevelt Island, a disaster in the making.

I'd like to see them re-open Engines 204, 212, and 261 myself, but if you need 3 engines for CFR-D for every 25,000 people, in New York City you would need over 1,000 engine companies.
I don't see that happening.

I hope none of those responding Cos take a wrong turn in LIC otherwise they could end up on a 50-60min detour into Manhattan over the bridge.

It can very easily happen.......... right Willy D?????? ::)

I guess we won't be seeing any new/reopened companies in Long Island City anytime soon.

Thank the local politicians.  Meanwhile, there are a hundred counties and cities banging on Amazon's door with "deals".
