Just a side note, Booth Memorial Avenue was once named North Hempstead Turnpike which ran from Lawrence Street to Horace Harding Blvd. The name was changed to Booth Memorial Avenue once the Booth Memorial Hospital (at Main Street) was built in the 60's. It is now known as N.Y. Presbyterian Hospital Queens.

Surprised by the initial assignment. I would think that E 274 would be second or third due to this box

Prior to the Haz-Mat companies being assigned, there were only 2 Engines on the box.
Haz-Mat companies were assigned in between the initial ticket and the All Hands.
E-320 & E-305 were both assigned upon transmission of the All Hands.
