A makeshift memorial for East Village explosion victim Nicholas Figueroa on 2nd Avenue
This afternoon, the family of Nicholas Figueroa, one of the two men who died in the March 26 gas explosion at 121 Second Ave., created a makeshift memorial in his honor on the plywood at the scene of the disaster.
Figueroa's family also left the white roses yesterday on the site where 119-123 Second Ave. once stood.
Figueroa, 23, had just finished a meal with a friend at Sushi Park when the explosion occurred. Authorities have said that an illegally tapped gas line at 121 Second Ave. may have caused the deadly blast. The investigation continues.
