Anyone know when 114 moved in with 201? More importantly why did they move out of 5 Avenuequarters?

E201’s quarters was in disrepair, L114’s was much better. E278 was disbanded & 40Bn moved in with E247.
All of E201’s guys, save the detailed MPO from E241, were killed on 9/11.
Next to E201’s firehouse was an empty lot, there used to be an old style diner on it.
The city, I believe eminent domained it & built the new firehouse. I believe in memory of those lost on 9/11 & on the footprint of the old firehouse. 40Bn & L114 moved down.
L114’s old house is still an FDNY building, used for another purpose & E278’s old house is used by FDNY EMS.

Restoring any fire company is next to impossible in NYC.
Hope....but & it's huge long shot with the companies that closed & of course the population & construction on the rise in those areas it would be common sense but this administration really doesn't care & the morons in their ears telling that's not the "hot topic" to address we all know it will never happen.

and

Engine 4 after 37 years restored at former Engine 10 location, which had moved 4 years earlier to restore at former Engine 6 location after 10 years

Doubtful you have ever been to City Island.

Fires are rare there. Residents seem to appreciate and care for what they have, I.e., location, insulation, nice (not opulent) private homes.

Try convincing those taxpayers that, for one of those rare occasions, they are better off with L53 a half hour off the Island, 2d due, at a “food on the stove” at Coop City.

Good luck on that.
