At Freddy's the "chains of justice" are installed

Today was the installation of the "chains of justice" at Freddy's Bar & Backroom, so regulars can, in protest, chain themselves to the bar if condemnation proceeds.

I couldn't make it but photographer Tracy Collins shot a set of photos, including the response of the fire department to a fire down the block at one of the few remaining occupied buildings. (Here's coverage from the AP and New York Post.)

Below is a video from Found in Brooklyn.
