Ladder 8 moving to Hudson Yards makes complete sense, but why move Engine 7 to N. Moore Street?

Fyi Engine 204 never became Engine 168....the only thing Engine 168 had at the time was ex 204s rig because there was no other rigs to give to the new company..Eng 168 opened up in the Rossville section of Staten Island sue to the fact of minimal fire coverage in that area..and that was exposed when a 5 alarm fire broke out 2 months before Engine 168 was organized..the city..the job..the people noticed a need for coverage so everyone rallied for a new engine in that area..( I happen to work there as well)

And how much taxpayer money will it take for the City to buy land in one of Manhattan's most expensive areas to construct a new firehouse?  And why didn't the Hon. Mr. Bloomberg and his business partner/sidekick, Mr. Davidoff (who left city government to become an executive with the developers), grasp the very easily understood concept that a new firehouse and a new police precinct would be parts of critically necessary infrastructure of their re-zoning efforts in Chelsea?  And look for the two remaining five story buildings  on Tenth Avenue between 34th and 35th Streets housing very long-term, local, small businesses to be kicked out when the city buys their land at below market rates (eminent domain?) for the firehouse.

Oh, maybe so many bucks to be made....????
