Coincidentally (or not), that front roll sign dated to the 1960's. Day Line must've abandoned that service after 1966 or so.

That type grill as on #3215 was definitely associated with first-gen Fishbowls. The finer grill was second-gen and later.

Also, on #3215, the two small ads on the rear side, one above each side of ...

I think it's time to revive not only this thread, but the entire section of which this is part. Here is a 1968 photo of the back side of #3215 (ex FACL #5) after being reworked and transferred to the ...

Later to be renumbered 3261 in 1963 and as such, running until about 1970. But . . . even as a newie, it was still weather-beaten like most STS rolling stock.

Probably the only Manhattan depot to not house any of the Grumman 'Borough Bombers'. They did have a fair share of 1975-77 Flxible 'Dangerfields', though.

When Hudson first opened in 1972 (from what I read, 39 years to the day before 9/11!) as a replacement for the sardine-can 12th Street depot, that garage's fleet of buses - 3488-3555, from the first m ...
