    UPDATED, March 27, 12:23 p.m.: A five-story East Village building collapsed Thursday afternoon after an explosion rocked the structure and caused it to partially collapse. Two people are still unaccounted for, according to news reports.

    Smoke emanated from the 8,460-square-foot property at 121 Second Avenue, near 7th Street, following a blast around 3:20 p.m., officials told the New York Daily News. The fire then spread to the neighboring building, 123 Second Avenue, which has now also collapsed, with 119 Second Avenue in danger of collapsing. At least 19 people were injured — four of whom are in critical condition, the New York Post reported. About 130 firefighters initially battled the fire, but as of 5:15 p.m. Thursday, about 250 were on the scene. Investigators suspect that a gas leak at Sushi Park on the ground floor of 121 Second Avenue sparked the explosion, according to news reports.

    Preach as he might, the Rent Is Too Damn High party leader Jimmy McMillan took a hit today when a Brooklyn federal judge dismissed his lawsuit seeking to halt his eviction from a rent-stabilized East Village apartment.

    McMillan, a former gubernatorial candidate, claimed his landlord Lisco Holdings was illegally trying to evict him by falsely claiming that he was using his $872 per month rent-stabilized apartment as a second home. McMillan holds that he lives there and uses a second apartment in Brooklyn as an office. [more]
