    Ponder this....

    As you all know brand names and logos that have been in use for decades, years and maybe more are being removed as they are deemed disparaging. Certain words are facing the same demise. The most recent one is "Master" as in "Master Suite, Master Bath, "Gravy Master" and so on. My question is...

    I believe there was a 10-75 around noon today at Box 9611. I didn't catch any info but I heard E301 relocating to E294 and 140 truck relocating to L143. Sorry, I have no further.

    Harry Harrison

    Sad to report that we lost another great radio legend. Harry Harrison passed way yesterday (01/28/2020 at the age of 89. Harry was of WMCA 570, WABC 770 and of course CBS-FM 101.1 in the NY area for years. Harry would always say 'Unwrap each day as a special gift. I occasionally saw Harry week...

    Exit Numbers

    Perhaps the FDNY dispatchers on this site would be able to shed some light on this question. I have been out of the main loop, so to speak, for a good while and I notice that highway runs are now dispatched over the air with exit numbers rather than street locations. For example, 'Grand Central...

    My wife and I were driving on Pa. Rte. 100 this afternoon, a two lane road, when what do I see but a Crown open cab pumper coming northbound. I haven't seen one of those rigs since Roy and Johnny left Station 51, in repeats anyway. There was only one man on the rig and in the brief moment I had...

    Happy to report that we got our electric and cable back last night at about 2100. We were out since last Friday. It just started snowing again and the winds are picking up now so lets see how long the electric holds on. Glad to be back here, if only for a short time.

    Tax Bill Problem

    I received this e-mail this afternoon from AFSCME and wanted to pass it along. Whether or not you are a recipient of a "public pension" I think it would be beneficial if everyone called. Here is the message..."The tax bill being debated by Congress may lead to cuts to public pensions! Your...

    Security Alert

    Here's something new, well, at least on my computer. When I log into this site a "Security Alert" pops up and asks me if I want to stay on the site or discontinue. I've never had this prior to a day or two ago and I know I've never had a problem with this site or one relating back to it. Are any...

    Flushing, Queens

    have a question for all of you 'senior' Queens people. To start, I was attempting to explain to my daughter what the corner(s) of Northern Blvd. and Union Street were like when I was a kid. I seem to remember as follows; N/E corner was and is Flushing High School, N/W corner was a Texaco gas...

    EMT's Rundown

    According to channel 7, ABC-New York, 2 FDNY EMT's were rundown by their ambulance as it was being stolen in the Soundview section of the Bronx. Through another source, unconfirmed, bot members were transported to Jacobi Hospital in traumatic arrest. My prayers are with them.

It was reported that chassis will be brought to this facility from their Ohio plant and custom apparatus will be finished here in...

    Has anyone noticed the large amount of static on the Queens frequency. I receive the other boroughs clear but Queens is not quite heard due to the aforementioned static.

    Queens 10-75

    Anything on a 10-75 at 174-02 Horace Harding Expwy. at a gas station? That would be practically behind 299/152 quarters. I don't have any audio at the moment on my computer.
