Fillmore Fire

22 Fillmore Place, August 2008.

This is old news by now, but over the summer (in June?) there was a pretty sizable fire at 22 Fillmore Place. The fire gutted the third floor; the cornice and brownstone at the third-story lintels were pretty heavily damaged.

Luckily, no one was injured and the damage was contained.

22 Fillmore Place is one of twenty two row houses constructed in the early 1850s by Alfred Clock and Ephraim Miller. Eighteen of those row houses survive today, and they form the core of a proposed Fillmore Place Historic District. WPA requested that the Fillmore Place Historic District be designated an official New York Historic District in September 2007. The Landmarks Preservation Commission is reviewing this request and is expected to act on it in the near future.
