"22 and 44 actually built with that plan but not enacted". It's too bad that 22's qtrs. were not built to house 44. A few months after it opened Sq. 9 was organized. Very tight qtrs. for 3 companies.

Perhaps in retrospect, it was better that so many of those double engine houses never occurred.  As the runs started to drop off, the bean counters would have found those houses as ripe targets for their pencils and erasers!

  Yes, other than 264/328, any double engine house is a sure target and even 264/328 was mentioned in the last projected "Doomsday" cuts that thankfully, didn't come to fruition.

And then there's Bridgeport.  They built a new house for E3/L3 and E 4.  The brains decided to close one company; they closed L3 and left the two engines that are both still there today.  Try to figure that one out.

Engine 266 and Engine 267 shared a firehouse at 92-22 Rockaway Beach Blvd for 50 years.  (1922-1972)

Engine 275, 298, and 299 shared a firehouse at 89-56 162nd St from 1925 until 1960.

add LAD*127 * BN*50 to 162 St....there is an older thread somewhere on here detailing much History of that & other not as big "BIG Houses" including a picture of the drawn postcard showing the 162 St FH.

There were two triple houses in Brooklyn that I know

Engs 246-327  and L169  on East 23rd St off Voorhies Ave. until about 1959 or 60

Engs 245-326 And L161 & the 43 Bn.  West 8th St. Coney Island  I think that was gone early 50's

SI - Engine 155/Ladder 78/Rescue 5 occupied same firehouse when Rescue 5 was put into service about 1948 until VN Bridge was opened in early 1960s and rescue 5 was deactivated.

Rescue 5 was later reorganized at Engine 160.

The squad companies formed for manpower during wartime and during FDNY "War Years" occupied firehouses with engine and truck companies so there were many firehouses with three companies.  The Super Pumper and Super Tender shared quarters with an engine and truck.  Maybe a few water tower companies were third companies in a few firehouses before being deactivated in the 1950's.     

Also - there were many 2 section engine and 2 section truck companies in FDNY history.  Double section companies frequently meant 3 companies sharing quarters.

Pitt Street firehouse was originally built for engine, truck, squad and chief.  Firehouse had lettering for companies but the squad was disbanded to form a needed engine company, I believe in the Bronx.

I believe there were some plans to put Satellite 1 and the Satellite Officer in with 17/18 as well.  That was before the Satellites were paired with engine companies.

Squad 5 never got to Pitt Street from E Broadway.  They were moved to Engine 41 in the The Bronx about one month after Pitt St opened.

Firehouses with Guest Companies but never permanently assigned.

Single Engine houses that hosted Ladders and single Truck houses that hosted Engines.

Engine 260      has hosted both Ladder 115 and Ladder 116 but never had a Ladder permanently assigned

Engine 283      has hosted both Ladder 120 and Ladder 174 but never had a Ladder permanently assigned
      
Engine 270      has hosted Ladder 125, Ladder 126 and Ladder 127 but never had a Ladder permanently assigned

Engine 293      has hosted both Ladder 142 and Ladder 143 but never had a Ladder permanently assigned

Engine 306      has hosted both Ladder 152 and Ladder 167 but does not have a Ladder permanently assigned at this time

Engine 319      has hosted both Ladder 135 and Ladder 140 but never had a Ladder permanently assigned

Ladder 079      has hosted both Engine 156 and Engine 157 but never had an Engine permanently assigned
