The Greenpoint Terminal Market Fire
Yesterday the biggest fire in recent New York City history (not counting 9/11) hit the Greenpoint Terminal Market/Warehouse, which I've previously said is what I love most about Greenpoint. It's sad to see it go, especially in such a dramatic fashion. Before heading to work, I biked over to the site, getting as close as about two blocks from the fire. It was easily the largest fire I've ever seen and it eventually grew to a 10 alarm fire with 400+ firefighters. After work, I went down to the site again, but it was essentially blocked off and I couldn't get nearly as close as I was in the morning. I'm very sad to see the building go. Next up for the site - really nice condos.

how convenient! maybe you should launch an investigation into the cause of the fire.
i think you might have forgot some extra text...jokin'
next up for the site - "ridiculous rent" condos for the ultra wealthy
