I have a special interest in this box, I stayed in this hotel on my first and so far only visit to NYC - although I hope to visit again soon. Nice to know the box number, would the response to this box have changed much over the years?

It's been more or less the same for years now.  The main change recently is E65 moving behind E8 while they're temporarily relocated.

So, wait. 65 Engine's going to 8's quarters? I thought they were at 26's?

  No, he means that E65 now responds behind (after) E8 while they're at E26.

Hi, thanks for the replies - I have to admit that I assumed E65 would just have been parked outside E26 however I just discovered in another thread that it's so fierce it has to be kept in a cage....
