Mott Street Fissure
Yesterday evening, two seemingly unrelated incidents unfolded simultaneously on Mott Street just below Houston. Only one was planned – the film shoot for an upcoming feature about “star-crossed lovers who meet and fall in love while struggling to deal with family tragedies that threaten to destroy their relationship.” Sounds Romeo & Juliet-esque.
The other incident was far more serious. During production, a fissure developed between the two tenements at 273-275 Mott Street. First responders were on scene, as were scores of eager onlookers armed with cameras. Both buildings were reportedly evacuated. For more coverage, check out fellow blogger EV Grieve.
