A little outside our usual coverage area... However, several readers sent word of a fire on the Lower East Side... Per a tweet by @winedanddined:
"Wow...the Three Monkeys at Ludlow and Rivington on Lower East Side just burned down."
This corner was once Paul's Boutique, made famous by the Beastie Boys. (BoweryBoogie has more on that here.)
According to DNAinfo: "The fire department received a call about a fire in the first floor of the restaurant at 99 Rivington St. about 8:11 p.m. The fire was put out by 8:46 p.m., FDNY said."
There weren't any reported injuries.
Interestingly enough, BoweryBoogie noted just last week how some residents were unhappy with the noise coming from Three Monkeys at night...
