thx. I’ll link directly there.
Phil sent me the link :)
oh cripes! Suspect Video! Man… what a harsh awakening for those both living upstairs and who work/run businesses.
Some people are already claiming conspiracy, Home Depot has been trying to buy that lot for a long time, they wouldn’t sell, and now suddenly a fire. Now I don’t know too much about this said conspiracy so I can’t vouch, however I”m a sucker for good conspiracy story, and this one sounds red hot to me. *pun intended*
are those icicles?
seeing burnt out buildings makes me sad now. Stupid fire.
oh Suspect…i mean, it’s Suspect…or was… * sob *
Bullshit because it’s a “historical district” and legally couldn’t be renovated. Even with them burnt down, whatever replaces it has to “fit” the neighbourhood.
Besides, Home Depot is already building a place a few blocks away.
I work like 15 blocks away from that, and was coughing my head off from the smoke, between the subway and the office.
suspect video; pizza place; sample sale store; antiques store; etc…so ridiculous. if ANY part of queen west burns, it’s painful. :(
apparently no one was able to get insurance in the building, too (residents OR businesses), as it was too old. so now everyone who lived above those stores = screwed.
hmm. interesting to know, as someone else was suggesting that very same conspiracy today….and it’s always good to know that home depot isn’t able to plonk itself down as a result of unfortunate happenings.
Hey I never said I believed it. I don’t even know the details, I was simply repeating what someone else on my friends list who lives like a block from where it happened posted the morning of the fire. Me, I have no clue about the politics of it.
i think we should burn this planet and start from scratch ….
either that or buy cookies…. whatever
the treasures lost in that fire blow my mind.
I honestly don’t have words for how I feel when I look at that photo.
