We were very excited yesterday to receive the Museum of the City of New York’s announcement that they had expanded their online photo collection by over 10,000 images. But we were even more captivated when we came across their shocking ca. 1905 photos of a fire at 36 Cooper Square (built in 1894 as a warehouse and now the headquarters of the Village Voice) in the NoHo Historic District. Do any readers have information about this fire?
The cast-iron frame held up well through what looks to have been a very devastating blow. Looking at the building today, one would never know!
