“My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and families of the tragic building collapse and fire in the East Village. This is a terrible tragedy for our City, and as the City Council continues to closely monitor the scene and await the results of a full investigation, we thank all of our FDNY, NYPD and EMS first responders for their courageous and selfless service. The City Council stands in solidarity with all New Yorkers as we pray for the safety and recovery of all those who were injured and their loved ones.”
