death of a bookstore 48/50 - astor place barnes & noble - subbasement 2

the one thing out of several tons of stuffff just couldnt get out the building. put it in the freight elevator going up, and the elevator just made a pathetic whiny sound. this from a machine built and used to move heaven and earth. this safe, incidentally, left by the former tenant (conrad's, a furniture store) in 1994. somehow, we were still responsible. no dial left on it and must weigh 3-4000 lbs. last i heard as i handed over the keys, they were sending the torches in. wonder what they'll find...
