"Ladies and gentlemen, the Bronx is burning"

-Howard Cosell

This statement was uttered during Game 2 of the 1977 World Series between the New York Yankees and the Los Angeles Dodgers when a fire raged unchecked and out of control at an abandoned elementary school near Yankee Stadium. The images and a dramatic statement on national television by sportscaster Howard Cosell is widely seen as the symbolic nadir of a dark period in city history.
