History / Re: FDNY and NYC Firehouses
« Last post by mack on Today at 09:08:23 PM »
Mack, in no way am I doubting your facts or wisdom, but, are you sure 49 used that second house on Welfare Island? I thought is was being built for them when they were disbanded and that only the Mask Service Unit used it.

Manhattan - No - I am not sure that Engine 49 actually used the second Welfare Island firehouse in the picture.  You are probably right.  I used the date listed in Mike Boucher's history for a move into a new Welfare Island firehouse in 1949.  Engine 49's first firehouse was listed as built in 1882.  Engine 49 was disbanded in 1958 before this picture was taken.  Welfare Island became home of FDNY's Fire Academy in 1962.


1960s Originally Blackwell's Island (renamed Welfare Island, then renamed Roosevelt Island) firehouse built 1882 (pictures taken FDNY Fire Academy):

They probably should have special called the battalion thatís expertise is fire duty.
They relocated that BN to BN*13.

They can't rely on the 46 to manage every fire in the city
