I can’t believe I just read this – FuBar on 50th street in New York has just been crushed by a crane! This was the great little dive bar I used to hang out in all the time when I first came back to NYC in May 2004. Wow.
The owner John LeGreco (picture above with Deidre) is OK as he had arrived late for work, but at the moment they’re worried one of his bar tenders is in the rubble. Fingers crossed this isn’t the case. Four construction workers died as they were on or around the crane when it came down. Sad news indeed. My thoughts are with everyone down there.
