Cupcakes Amongst Tragedy

Walking down towards work yesterday, I was rerouted several blocks due to the horrific crane incident on Saturday. 52nd was blocked off completely to 3rd Ave., and 2nd Ave. was a mess of dust and debris; firefighters and cops running around with walkie talkies; St. Patrick’s Day freaks; and tourists and NYers stopping to look at the crumbled buildings and now vacant lots.

It was a devastating sight.

Buttercup Bake Shop on 2nd Ave, offered their soul-satisfying cupcakes and coffee for free out in front of their shop. They said it was for St. Patty’s Day, and it shed a little bit of light onto those 5 blocks, bringing together the community in these moments of tragedy.

RIP.
