a blazing building fire in soho

i was walking west on rivington from the LES and i could see this huge tower of smoke coming from behind buildings up ahead. when i got to spring st. there were all these fire trucks, police, medic units and a large crowd of people who were standing around watching the building burn. i tried to get a better picture of the fire but they wouldn’t let us closer and the trees were in the way. damn trees. i left after the police started shooing people away.

 

this is what the bottom of the building looked like.

i passed by it again much later that night and the fire was out and the building looked like it had been saved. it looked empty though, so they must not have let anyone back in. i’m sure the inside was a complete mess. the fire was on the top floors so even though the bottom floors weren’t in flames they were certainly damaged by all the water pouring down and through it. it was just kind of eerie that there were dishes and things left deserted on the tables in the restaurant.
