Battalion 60 was a War Years unit established to provide additional Battalion Chief response availability in Bushwick's 37th Battalion area.  It was quartered with Engine 218 but it was not permanently assigned any companies.

As a loyal Red Sox fan I agree with using the Yankees cards!

I'm almost positive it's a Bronto HLA series industrial platform they are testing in this picture (https://brontoskylift.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/S-HLA_EN_lowres.pdf). I know several of the utility companies in New York have them so they probably brought one down for FDNY to test.

Also, after doing some further looking around I found that there is actually a company in NYC that rents them out for industrial uses (https://skywaylifts.com/?fbclid=IwAR0GT_o7JeZGsKc-vm6TNTvUf3-VTI7VbFIyUm7i9qQo4FAzw1w40OYslFA) Although the tallest one they list on their webpage is 230ft.

Here's a link to the fire service version that NFPA rates for 291ft (https://brontoskylift.com/us/product/f291hla/). Obviously they are a special-purpose piece of apparatus much like the Super Pumper was. They are no where near as maneuverable or quick to set up as other aerial apparatus but they certainly have a huge height advantage when needed.

 Hmmm...  I'd really like to see any FDNY Info on this Pic. It appears to be
 Testing of a Rental Crane ? Does FDNY have an actual Plans/Assignment for such a Rig ?   ???

Yes, they do.

Discussed at many staff meetings.  Bronto skylift type apparatus.

Exploring places to keep it. Very preliminary at this point.
