First, two police officers were hospitalized after getting residents out of a burning building in Ridgewood on Saturday, according to the 104th Precinct. Police Officers Jimmy Vincent and Mark Collins responded to a residential fire at 64-06 Madison St. — a three-floor residential building with six apartments — at about 11:20 a.m. on Saturday morning, police said. Authorities said Vincent and Collins were the first on the scene and noticed flames coming out of a third-floor window. The officers safely evacuated the entire building and rescued an elderly, wheelchair-bound male from a second-floor apartment. All residents were evacuated safely without injuries at the time, police stated. Both Vincent and Collins were removed to the hospital after suffering from smoke inhalation. Both are expected to make a full recovery. The fire is not believed to be suspicious, but an investigation is ongoing. Then, on Sunday, officers rescued a cat from a residential fire on 88th Street in Glendale. Officers from the 104th Precinct and FDNY personnel administered CPR on the feline after removing it from the house.

Two development sites sold in Bushwick for $2.6M By Anthony Giudice email@example.com @A_GiudiceReport Two residential development sites in Bushwick, were recently sold by Cushman & Wakefield to 303 S Holdings LLC, a holding company based in Albany, in an all-cash transaction valued at $2.6 million. One site, at 181 Troutman St., features a two-story, two-unit building that is approximately 2,025 square feet, and was gut-renovated back in 2009. It also benefits from approximately 3,475 additional square feet of air rights. The other location, 303 Stockholm St., has a vacant, one-story former auto body shop on a 25-foot by 100-foot lot. Both sites combine for approximately 11,000 square feet of buildable space. The sales price equates to nearly $236 per buildable square foot. The locations are situated near several public transportation options, including the J, L, M and Z train lines. They are also in close proximity to many of Bushwick’s flourishing art galleries, night life and dining options.
