A quick update on the 240 E. Houston fire

Just a quick update on the fire from last Thursday at 240 E. Houston... As I mentioned, Discovery Wines reopened last Friday... Kelly's is also open, though the Double Down next door is still "closed for renovations" (it was closed even before the fire...)...and the nail salon around the corner on Houston remains closed...

As for Discovery, here are a few shots from the fire's aftermath...

The Discovery folks are babysitting the fish for some displaced neighbors from the fifth floor...

I can't even begin to guess how much water from the fire hoses gushed through this building. If my upstairs neighbors can bring down my ceiling with their clogged shower drain, I can only imagine what a few fire hydrants can do.
