The New York City Fire Department put out a fire in the Brentmore apartments yesterday. The 12 story apartment is across the street from Central Park and home to several celebrities including actor Robert Deniro, Lorne Michael of Saturday Night Live legend, and actress Celeste Holm.
In typical New York fashion, the New York Daily News called the fire a “blaze” making it sound like the residents were lucky to be alive while the New York Times called it, a “small fire.” Their interview with Celeste Holm’s husband was particularly amusing. He said of his older wife, “She’s sharp, she’s active. This didn’t get us down at all,” he said. “We’re going to go see ‘Once’ on Broadway.”
