Just heart breaking and I hope everyone is safe especially fighting fire in this heat.
A lot of firemen died Sept. 11 from the houses in the area and pre-Sept. 11 Capt. Drennan and his guys died. I remember all the flowers outside the firehouse and I joined in putting flowers out -- this was pre-9-11 and I left them for Bobby Beddia & Joseph Graffagino
Just saw footage on Channel 5 news and again I hope everyone is safe --- big NYPD turn out, one ambulance in the area ---
it is right next door to the hideous ugly "Red Square" built by developer Mike Red Square Rosen and they showed the Lenin statue on the roof--- a rich man, Mike Red Square Rosen's toy -- he kids himself that Lenin is waving at Wall Street but many of us think Lenin should be moved to his luxury duplex or triplex ---that the statue symbols what a big phony and hypocrite Rosen is. Rosen considers himself a zoning expert and he has quite the views from the Christadora is a symbol of gentrification and The Red Square looks like a pro-type for all the mega dorms that have destroyed the East Village. NY Law dorm on 3rd Street even has balaconies like Red Square. Mike Red Square Rosen is a mini-Mike Bloomberg wannabe.
My maternal Grandfather was born down the street on Ludlow Street in a tenement house in to poverty. It was the early 1900s and you could smell the poverty on the street.
Re-open our firehouses the mayor closed after 9-11.
