In the early morning hours of Halloween last year, a devastating blaze leveled 10 stores -- and severely damaged 4 more -- on Bainbridge Avenue in Norwood, a lively northwest Bronx commercial corridor. While a few stores have relocated, there is still no word a year later on what the landlord has planned for the site. She hasn't returned repeated calls from the Norwood News or Community Board 7.

Meanwhile, to add insult to injury, the landlord of the adjacent stores, that were left without essential services for months, is suing the merchants for not paying rent for the time they were out of commission. More on that here.
