It's a duct fire at a TGI Fridays on the first floor.
No injuries.

How do you even notice a six-story building in Manhattan?

Was there any closer news agencies that could report this? Junction City Daily Union maybe?

That's odd...the fire usually gets off on the 2nd floor.
 
2014-06-06 10:51:28 PM  
Several people reported seeing and smelling the smoke across the East River in Long Island City.....


And then had a craving for burgers.

Fire in New York City reported by the LA Times.

Maybe someday NYC will get its own Times newspaper.

See all the lens flare/bloom around  all the lights on the street?  The smoke is real, the rest is just lights that the photographer decided to dramatize by over exposing the picture.  There are no flames visible in that picture.

The submitter called a six-story building a "skyscraper".  That's an incredibly broad use of the term.

OK I think I get it....

These images are real:

pbs.twimg.com

BUT according to this site,

Although many photos shared on social media show flames shooting from rooftops, officials say no buildings were ever engulfed in flames. Instead, the flames probably shot up through the building's ventilation system.

So this fire just looked bad but was just a big nothing.

The "six story" building thing also appeared to somehow grow to what, twenty floors?

/they do everything  bigger in NYC.

Wait..you reported someone because they called a 6 story building a skyscraper?
 
2014-06-06 10:55:15 PM  
"A restaurant's on fire!"
"Is it someplace good?"
"Lemme check. Thank God, it's Fridays."
"Pull it."

No sprinkler system?

A second burger has hit the building.

Wow, a six stories skyscraper.

You probably could really see forever from the top of that structure, hoo boy.

That's some impressive overexposure.

(if not full-up fraud)

Everything was fine with our system until the power grid was shut off by dickless here.

Meanwhile in TFA's side panel: 5-alarm fire in Staten Island house

Have I timewarped back to April 1st? How the heck can a house fire turn into a 5-alarm inferno that hurts 35 people and takes 8 hours to put out?
 
2014-06-06 11:15:10 PM  
Don't worry. It's inflammable!!

It's not necessarily fraud or overexposure... The human eye's dynamic range is so enormous compared to even a good camera, let alone a crummy phone camera, that there likely was no "correct" exposure here. Go up on a hill overlooking town some time near twilight, take a good look with your eyes, then try and get the same from a camera without using an HDR compositing program.

/cameras recover from saturation overload way, way faster than eyes though

NY skyscraper reminds me of a question:  Why are so many of the critters on Skull Island supersized along with King Kong, but the dinosaurs are basically just regular-sized, for dinosaurs, anyway?
