While I was away this weekend I received an e-mail from Kim at PressHD.com alerting me to the fact that a fire had taken place in the brush down in Southpoint Park.
Link through to her site for more info and to her Flickr page of additional photos.
The fire was also covered by the Roosevelt Islander and was picked up on Gothamist. Any pictures from Manhattan?
