A fire at 515 West 59th Street has 20 people trapped on the roof and has injured 13 people, including three firefighters. The fire started on the third floor around 5pm, then spread to the fourth floor before it was put out.
Shruti Kulkarni, tweeted: “Fire in our building and we are trapped inside on the 7th floor. Can’t go down stairs. Smoke in the halls. Please pray for us.'”
Bhavik Shah, photographed the fire from above: ‘Waiting on rescue crew to evacuate us, stuck on 13th floor!’
Children were seen being carried out of the building. Part of the building is used as accommodation for doctors and medical residents affiliated with St Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital, also known as Mount Sinai West.
That hospital is located a few blocks away and many of those injured walked or were carried directly to it.
The cause of the fire is not yet known, although one resident stated it had been caused by a candle.
Illegal Migrants Now Are Given The Old McDonald Building On 42nd Street
Mayor Eric Adams is set to open another illegal migrant shelter right in the heart of Times Square. The vacant Candler Tower office building, at 209-213 West 42nd Street is about to house more illegal migrants.
This is smack dabb in the pulse of Times Square.
The building, once home to the 24-hour McDonald’s restaurant was long billed as the busiest and most profitable of its kind in the US. Thanks to COVID-19 the building was lockdown in June 2020 and the building’s owner, UK-based investment company EPIC, reportedly signed over the deed in March 2022 to avoid foreclosure.
This property is 227,685 square feet and has 24 floors, with a market value of $110,464,000.
There are now 103 emergency shelters being used to house migrants and guess who is footing the bill?
Why are we not housing our Vets, our homeless or our senior citizens? I guess if you are illegal you get a free pass!
Illegal Migrants Become Picky On What New York Tax Payers Offer
Over hundreds of illegal migrants that were housed in high end Midtown hotels have set up a tent encampments rather than move to a shelter set up by Mayor Eric Adams. These rooms were costing New Yorkers $450-a-night, and were at 3.5-star hotels.
The encampment is outside The Watson Hotel, but expect more outside The Row and other hotels where the migrants trashed the rooms.
The tent city in The Bronx and on Randall’s Island were not deemed good enough and were abandoned. Now a shelter at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal is to be the new home for at least 1,000 male migrants who were housed at the Watson. That led to the migrants to refuse to relocate, setting up camp directly outside in direct defiance of Adam’s order. For people who have no money now they have tents. Who is funding this rebellion?
The tents reportedly were gifted to the displaced by members of the local community, but New Yorkers are trying to fend for themselves. There is definitely somebody or a group behind this as a table complete with coffee, bananas, water, and pizza were available.
They are writing on signs “Permanent homes,” but what about the veterans, the American homeless, the abused families in America who are homeless? Why do illegals expect so much.
This is reportedly going to cost taxpayers $1 billion for 2022 alone. Before the migrant crises NYC already had tens of thousands of New Yorkers in shelters. They never got 3 – 4 star hotels.
Crime In NYC and Why Is Jen Psaki Involved?
New York City Police Department data show 1,470 shootings, 443 murders and 9,595 cases of auto grand larceny, making shootings double what they were two years ago and murders are up by 50 percent
NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea has repeatedly blamed bail reform laws for the spike in violent crime in recent years and he is right, bail reform, is the reason crime is now an open spree where if you wound someone or injure them you are the victim. NYPD Commissioner Dermo Shea has stated “We’re seeing a little bit of mental illness, we’re seeing just disregard for common decency, but when you have mass amounts of people put back on the streets that have traditionally been held in jail, you’re seeing some of that permeate.”
Bew Jirajariyawetch 23, was assaulted and robbed in the 34th Street Herald Square subway by a dark skinned man, who was most likely out on bail reform. Anti-Asian violence has plagued the city this year, with 127 attacks against Asians – a nearly five-fold increase from the 28 attacks in 2020.
Soccer player Akeem Loney, 32, was fatally stabbed in the neck at Penn Station. Police are also hunting for a man who allegedly threatened to kill a woman on the subway with two wooden spikes after making ‘anti-white statements’ late last month. The suspect wielded the large shivs at a 46-year-old woman near the 59th Street subway station.
Craig Tamanaha 49, had a long rap sheet and was known for vagrant stunts such as exposing himself to a group of reporters outside the Ghislaine Maxwell trial in Manhattan. Surprise, surprise Tamanaha was released shortly after his arrest for allegedly torching the 50-foot Christmas tree outside the building that houses Fox News, the Wall Street Journal and The Post. In a twist to this story the White House’s Jen Psaki pressed NYC to release The News Corp. Christmas tree arsonist. Why is she involved?
A pickpocket with more than 30 arrests was back out on the street, an arsonist burn down a half-million-dollar Christmas tree in New York City is back out on the streets, Ricardo Hernandez faces three hate-crime charges after allegedly trying to shove an Asian undercover cop onto Queens subway tracks. He was released. Takim Newson, 32, who had more than 20 priors and stood charged with attempted murder and related crimes. He allegedly shot a 43-year-old man in the groin while trying to steal a cellphone at a bar was let out. Bank of America execs warn junior staffers to ‘dress down’ as NYC crime surges. Agustin Garcia, 63, a homeless man was busted three times in just 36 hours last week, boasting to NYPD cops that he would dodge bail at each turn because he “didn’t have a record.”He robbed two Manhattan straphangers — wielding a knife against one of them — and stealing a beer from a bodega all in one day. He’s out roaming the streets. Gary Teasley, 65, was released a day after a bust last week for allegedly pickpocketing tourists at the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree. He’s been arrested more than 30 times.
There are countless examples of hardened criminals getting away with murder, arson, robbery and petty crime. When will it stop? When will we be able top address the issues and when will New York City be safe again, because it is not!
Now Keechant Sewell, is set to become the first black woman to become New York City police commissioner thanks to Mayor-elect Eric Adams on Wednesday, will be charged with the daunting task of reversing the violent crime that has plagued the city, but will she? Black Lives Matter has already threatened the NYPD. Black Lives Matter also has threatened ‘riots’ and ‘bloodshed’ in the streets of New York City if Mayor-elect Eric Adams reinstates the NYPD’s anti-crime units – a vow Adams later doubled down on the following day. It seems Black Lives Matter’s or should I say George Soro’s is running everyone’s lives, not the government.
