The Roof is On Fire

New, 1 comment

Actually, twenty roofs are on fire, as the FDNY is deliberately setting ablaze nearly two dozen houses on Governors Island. The abandoned rowhouses have been furnished with modern day decor so the FDNY can burn it to the ground in order to test their fire-stopping techniques. Why? Because research suggests that your new plastic-particle-stuffed IKEA sofa is probably more likely to burst in the flames that your grandma's vintage cotton-filled chaise lounge. [Animal]
