Among the residents displaced by the fire that engulfed an EDGEWATER, NJ apartment complex WEDNESDAY (1/21) was NEW YORK YANKEES radio voice JOHN STERLING. The AVALON AT EDGEWATER complex along the HUDSON RIVER opposite MANHATTAN was destroyed in the five-alarm fire.
STERLING told the BERGEN RECORD that he "lost everything" in the blaze, "but those things can be replaced." And he told the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS' BOB RAISSMAN that he has received calls and support from many concerned friends and co-workers checking up on him and added, “You know, we can all relate to having our own safe existence, and what it could mean if that’s taken away. At least I know I’m safe tonight. I don’t have a toothbrush, but I’m safe.”
