There was a fire this morning at the stand on the public space next to Madison Square Park at 23rd and Park. I couldn’t tell if anyone was hurt. Couldn’t really tell much actually, as police and firefighters had it all surrounded. In what continues to be the worst news reporting ever, I don’t even remember what the stand was. I couldn’t tell with all the fire damage. Was it a newsstand? Maybe instead of a news story this can be a reflection of how narrowly focused we can be in our endeavours, walking the same path nearly every day and only really discovering something after it burns.
Fire on 23rd Street (1.20.09)
