WhiteBlossoms-JacksonHeightsThe pure white blossoms of Spring offer a poignant contrast, on Earth Day, to the charred remains of an office building in Jackson Height, NYC, after a suspicious fire tore through it last night — the fourth fire there in the last year (according to a source at the scene).

The building houses Plaza College, which had announced plans to relocate later this year. In Jan. 2011 the New York Daily News ran a story on Plaza College with the headline: “Queens Plaza College is known for its links to crooked politician and bribes”.
