East Village Fire in New York City
On March 26th, 2015, an explosion caused two buildings to collapse only a few buildings away from East Village Chiropractic. We felt the blast under our feet while patients were in the office. First responders arrived immediately; police barricaded the street and asked us to evacuate. They worried about the domino effect as the fire was wrapping around the corner toward our office. I actually took these pictures from my parents’ patio across the street from the office and watched as firefighter dug a whole into the ground in front of the stoop of the office, so he could access a gas line.
At the end of the night, I returned to the office and found it full of smoke. Today, I am at the office to begin our own clean up, so we can open our doors on Monday.
