Across the road from our building is another old warehouse converted into apartments: one of the Mark Foys buildings. This is not the original store, that’s now the Downing Centre. This is the brownstone Mark Foy warehouse.
It’s a very large building, with a lot of apartments in it. Lots of apartments means lots of ‘stuff’ going on. A recent trick has been triggering the fire alarm. It’s loud, the whole building needs to be evacuated and it requires two fire engines each time.
