A City Grieves after Deadly Highbridge Fire

The neighborhood of Highbridge, the local Islamic and Malian communities, and the city of New York as a whole have united in mourning the deaths of eight children and one adult in the city’s deadliest fire in almost twenty years.
On Thursday night, Highbridge residents (pictured) gathered for a candlelight vigil to honor the nine victims. Funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. Monday at the Islamic Cultural Center on East 166th Street. Donations are being collected at several sites, including the Cultural Center, a memorial near the site of the fire, and mosques throughout the city.
