Society Burns

Our metro-minded friends at Gothamist were kind enough to let us know about a fire in Chelsea parking garage this morning. As always, the 'Ists provided some useful service journalism, pointing out related disruptions on the Eighth Avenue IND lines. Unfortunately, they neglected to mention the news that folks like us would find most exciting: A bevy of socialites were attending the conflagration.

At least, we assume they must have been. If not, we can't begin to image why Patrick McMullan has a whole gallery today devoted to this entirely unglamorous event.
