Walk or bike past it every workday and night on my way to/from work.
Lots of construction lately, not terribly surprised and errant spark/flame found a way to get out of hand.

Hope you don't mind the smell of smoke on your shirts.

Like I've got cash to burn there even if this were of interest to me....

Not at all. I always hit up a dive bar or two on the way home from clothes shopping, and have a few drinks with my bags next to me, to "season" them.

Yeah, wonder how many customers ran from the store as the fire alarm is blaring, arms full of shiat they didn't pay for...

FTFAHL : Fire breaks out at Macy's flagship store in midtown Manhattan


Everyone knows that Chicagos Macys Flagship Store is superior to New Yorks Macys Flagship Store.

Been to both, Chicago and N.Y., somehow like the 34th street better. I remember in N.Y., asked where restroom was, had to go to sixth floor. Fuzzy memories...

This is not a repeat from 2012, but the fire and the pictures are pretty damn similar.

Remember me to Herald Square.

Reports are coming in from witnesses of a man seen running from the scene shortly before the blaze was spotted. He was repeatedly fiddling with his eyebrow and yelling "I HAVE AVENGED YOU, GRANDFATHER! I HAVE AVENGED YOU!!".

I like how they throw in the totally unrelated story of Robert Brown being briefly detained for shoplifting a couple weeks back...because absolutely nothing happened at the fire that they could report on.

Came to see Johnny, leaving happy.

Yeah that was a little odd. The way they interspersed the stories almost made it seem like they were trying to imply that he set the fire as payback or something.

FTA: The store made headlines earlier Friday when actor Robert Brown, an African-American, alleged that he was the victim of an unlawful stop-and-search while shopping at the 34th Street store.

Throwing this in makes it sound like this guy is a suspect in the fire because he wanted revenge. I know it's just the modern way of throwing everything into an article but the kitchen sink but seriously that's wrong.

Actor Forest Whitaker gets stopped and frisked leaving Morningside Heights deli

Black Teen Cuffed, Put in Cell After $350 Barneys Purchase; Second Shopper Says She Was Harassed


These articles should be get the PSA tag directed pointedly at white folks: It is not ok to stop black people just because they're black, even if you think they may have done something. History does not bear out white folks judgment on this issue. Probable cause isn't thinking a black person looks out of place. Have some proof or more than just, "Hey, that black person looks suspicious to me." Otherwise, stfu and let us the hell alone.

Maybe it should host a Christmas day parade so we would know it exist.

Kind of like of our NFL team went with a bigger cat than our AL baseball team, so folks would assume they were better.

Weird. I didn't read it like that. It just seemed typical for a current news bit to throw in a blurb about "this is what this store was in the news for last time."
Otherwise unrelated and unnecessary, sure, but I see it all the time.
Also I spent the entire day shopping in Manhattan with my wife and kid yesterday and have to say that if they stopped and frisked even a small percentage of the nonwhite folks on a regular basis in those stores, they would be out of business. I would say white clientele at dept stores in NYC is about 50-60%. With the news lately was expecting to see a tiny percentage of black shoppers with Aryan goons dressed in combat gear following them around the stores. Nothing could be further from reality. NYC truly is a huge melting pot, and while I'm sure there are terrible violations of civil rights going on here (as reported) but I'd also hazard a guess that a lot of it lately is just getting extra media attention. Which is good, I suppose (no place for racism anywhere), but I would say that as a country we have made enormous strides against racial discrimination in the last several decades, and that's a more beautiful story to tell.

Why is that white folks always think the racists look like Aryan nation/ skinhead types? You want to see what the average racist looks like? Pick up your family photo album.

It's easy to say we've made progress when you and your family aren't the ones getting their asses kicked, thrown in jail or outright killed. But hey, if the kumbaya version events fits your beautiful white narrative who the fark am I to argue.

I kinda feel bad jumping on you but it's the people like you who actually make shiat worse for people like me. The outright racists are easy to call out. The people who think shiat is ok and are happy with the way things are  - you farkers are dangerous as hell to me and mine.

Your Fark cred must be higher than mine. Anytime I post an image with the F word in it, it gets taken down. Like the Gary Coleman "Who Farking Cares?"

Too bad about all the black gangs and actual criminals out there, that are committing actual crimes, that make you and yours look bad, isn't it? But no, it isn't their fault. It's the fault of the stupid white people who try to be nice to you.
