Fire on 23rd Street (1.20.09)

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.
