I have always wondered about apparatus placement in quarters. For example, if you stand in the street and face the house:
Most of the houses in Brooklyn have the truck on the right side/engine on the left, while most of the Bronx houses seem to have the truck on the right and the engine on the left.......any reason?

As far back as I can remember, the apparatus was always quartered opposite of what the company designations were on the outside over the apparatus floor doors, i.e. 144 under 295's markings and vice-versa. (I wonder if the "Carvel" ice cream store is still on the corner of 149 and 14?

Although meant well, please let us not make speculations or assumptions regarding this tragic event here in a public forum. We all know that in time an official ruling will be issued as to the cause.

Not a Whale Square post but in the late '70s / early '80s many jobs w/201/114 1st Due in Sunset Park Dwellings ....a lot of retribution by gasoline in a stairwell.

Going to Google maps (https://www.google.com/maps/@40.6491491,-74.0215478,3a,60.6y,182.98h,94.49t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sAyQiGy4dynoiSkp1b_FGow!2e0!7i13312!8i6656!6m1!1e1) and looking at the markings on the fuel tank, does anyone know what the marking ‘MOSF  2-1460) means?

Thank you.
