Here is a nostalgic look at the 54th Street Depot

The first photo shows a Fifth Avenue Coach Company open top double decker leaving the 54 Street Depot. Note the sign above the garage doors

Second shows a trio of ex-NYCTA TDH-4510s ready for service.

Finally a MaBSTOA TDH-5303 in front of the depot

Here is a series of photos of the 54th Street Depot in service for MaBSTOA with new look buses.

Note the different color schemes: some in green, some in two tone blue and one in blue and white. Also note the differences in destination sign readings and route designations

Ninth Avenue. The official address was 806 Ninth Avenue.

That a FACCo bus would be in front of a NYCO depot makes some sense, given both shared common ownership in one way or another.

This depot was originally owned and operated by New York Railways. They stored about 270 street cars.

This pic doesn't look like 54th . . .

I have to wonder if it's actually 146th Street (the current Mother Hale depot).
