Plane crash on the UES

First, for those who checked up on me, thanks – I was nowhere near the building.

But as it turns out, one mystery writer was:

Mystery writer Carol Higgins Clark, daughter of author Mary Higgins
Clark, lives on the 38th floor of the struck building and was coming
home in a cab when she saw the smoke. She hasn’t been able to get into
her apartment.

goodness I wasn’t at my apartment writing at the time," she said. She
described the building’s residents as a mix of actors, doctors, lawyers
and writers, and people with second homes.

I also know that Bonnie & Joe of Black Orchid are in spitting distance of the place, so hopefully they are all right, too.
