As mentioned around Bloggyland, an early-morning fire yesterday gutted the decommissioned Miss Williamsburg Diner along Kent Avenue on the neighborhood's north side. Coverage so far has revolved around whether neighboring DIY gallery building Monster Island was damaged (it wasn't), but what about the buildings on the other side of the diner?namely the luxury-conversion-pending 184 Kent warehouse and the towering, gleaming Northside Piers? Unscathed! Open house visitors now have a new bombed-out Kent Avenue landmark to make them question whether or not to get out of the car.
