I'm not from New York City (NYC for conversation's sake) but watching a random old video of the subway has me interested in attempting to map what sirens could have been within NYC.
Video that shows a omnidirectional HOR: (this URL may not work, I haven't gone here in a while)
At around the 8:15 mark, there's a HOR on the roof of a station. A bit later, this station is revealed to be "13th Avenue". I also have some knowledge of the MTA NYCT system. That siren was on the Culver Shuttle, which ran parallel to 39th street, I believe.
There's also this photo[ img ]
Feeling like mapping the former locations of the sirens of NYC. If you know of any, please feel free to pitch in!
TL;DR: Found photos of sirens in NYC, want to find the location for mapping purposes.

Here's an (unfinished) map of NYC's legacy system. ... sp=sharing

As of today, sirens in the NYC area consist of the LaGuardia 1003, which AFAIK is inactive because it hasn't rotated in months. SUNY Maritime has 2 Eaton WAVES, a port in Brooklyn has 2 2905s, and there are 2 STH-10s, a T-112 and a 40V2T (I think inactive) which used to sound for Shabbat on Fridays

Can it.

Oh hey, that's my map that I promptly forgot existed. If anyone wants to help on it I would not mind adding anyone to it.

Here's a photo for you all two. 125th St. station in 1978
