  1. let us hope its not a frum owned building like the last one.

    Moderators Note: The last “one” wasn’t even a Jewish owner, let alone Frum.

  2. That was a Jewish area through the 1950’s and early 60’s. There was a shul on Intervale that was open in the 1970’s but not really functioning. The area was a wasteland and the row of houses where the blast occurred is about 30 years old. I believe they are all privately owned 2 family homes.
