This morning the Red Cross is helping residents of a tenement building on East Broadway find temporary housing, after an overnight fire forced them to evacuate from the roof. The Daily News reports a wolverine was killed in the blaze (it’s illegal to keep the animals in the city). Here’s Channel 5’s report:
We keep seeing damage to our landmark buildings in Chinatown and the Lower East Side. This one was part of the Two Bridges National Register Historic District. It was built in 1886. The architect was Fred Ebeling. The ornate window hoods are notable.
