Bronx News Network has a slide show of the early morning fire that hit 204th Street, a major shopping stretch in the Norwood section. Authorities believe the blaze started in a newly-renovated Foodtown around 4 in the morning and built to a four-alarm conflagration.
“Lmfao 204th is gonna start looking like jamrock out here,” tweets Deanaxlynn, “niggas is gonna come & shoot music videos !” But the damage is very bad news for 204th Street, the scene of another big fire on Halloween of this year. 14 businesses were damaged, including a bakery that had just started to recover from a fire in April.
“Folks have an amazing resilience here,” a community organizer told the Times after that blaze. Let us hope that’s so.
