OMG. I bet the guy taking the photos of the scene had tears in his eyes. I would have had a hard time not going LA riot style up in there, looting like a major thug. J/k

Was there enough left to have a fire sale? ;)

That sucks, bigtime.

Brings back sad memories of Samy's in LA after the Rodney King Riots.

Oh dear! that's a tough one to hear. glad to hear there are few injuries at least. With that weather, the fire fighters have to fight the fire and the elements.

*sigh* I'm so glad I ordered through Adorama. :-)

Really, that's a shame. Lots of lost inventory, I'm sure. :-/

I'm just glad it wasn't the Manhatten store that went.

Wow, that sucks.

My package got out just in time...left early this morning according to UPS. When I saw this thread I was worried!

Good to read there are few injuries though.

It may not be a problem. Go ahead and call. Their Manhatten location takes up a whole city block and they also have other shipping locations around NY. This was just one wharehouse that burnt.

You know i wonder what they do with everything inside? they cant sell it i mean its probably got soot on it right... maybe a manufacture warranty? it will be easily replaced insurance but i sure would like to be around when they throw it out
02/24/2005 09:08:10 PM · #17
I don't know what they're going to do with it...I wish I was one of those firemen though. I'm going to go rumage in the dumpster out back...be back in a while.
02/24/2005 09:12:35 PM · #18

This is not cool, but then my next stop is www.adorama.com
02/24/2005 09:26:00 PM · #19
When I saw the news report, I took a trip over there. I dont live far from it. But the police wouldnt let me get too close.
02/24/2005 09:32:04 PM · #20
My shipment too is on it's way, a replacement for a defective item I shipped back to them, I hope it's not lost in the fire. I have not been credited for it yet........

Hey bro, I think my sympathy dropped off a little when you wrote "before I leave for CUBA". ' . substr('//www.hawkins.nu/gtchat/images/sosad.gif', strrpos('//www.hawkins.nu/gtchat/images/sosad.gif', '/') + 1) . '
