Re: NYCTA Bus Roster 1/1/73

There is a very steep climb on Lexington Avenue between 103rd and 102nd Streets which I'm sure, the A/C batwings (upper 8400's up to 8545) plying the M101 and M101A/M102 routes would have had the A/C turned off when approaching that area. I am of the age where, if I'm in the area, I try to avoid that specific stretch, instead walking down Third or Madison or Fifth.

When the OA batwings first turned up, only 12th Street out of which 12 - Spring/Delancey and 14 - 14th Street Crosstown were assigned (as was 13 - 8th Street Crosstown until about 1968 when it was shifted to 54th), didn't get any; but seven (8452-8458) were reassigned from Amsterdam in 1972 when the Hudson depot opened and put there.
