There is just something about an Ahrens Fox with the front mount high pressure pump. They were impressive.

There's more than one reason they were called "The Rolls Royce of fire apparatus".  ;)

1939 Worlds Fair - Flushing Queens

In September 1938, the FDNY 55th Battalion was formed and stationed at the Worlds Fair. Apparatus included 4 new Ahrens Fox pumpers.  The battalion was staffed by three FDNY Battalion Chiefs, fourteen FDNY company officers, and seventy FDNY firefighters.  The battalion had one double engine company and two single engine companies.  Apparatus was assigned to FDNY engine companies after the Worlds Fair closed.  The battalion responded to 237 alarms.  There were 166 fires, and 4 were multiple alarms.

The Ahrens Fox marked 222 was originally 214s rig when they were on Herkimer St. but when 214 moved in with L111 on Halsey St.  the fox could not fit in the narrow FH with the Truck in there so  222 & 214 swapped rigs.
