    In our final visit to the BHS, which overall I have to admit has been a vision broadening experience as a beginner architecture student; we begin in the same way as we had done in the past. My group and I, explored through a manuscript named Notes and memoranda, volume 2 written by Gabriel Fynman. We know that this journal was written on around twice a week and it was composed by experiences and thoughts described by Gabriel as he lived through each one of them. In one of these experiences, Fynman writes about a fire that took place at the warehouse of a cotton company. (Information and notes regarding what I read). This information led me to develop questions about the fire response in the cotton warehouse compared to the Brooklyn Theatre fire. This journal which is a primary source to the event that took place helps us understand the effect that events like fires, natural disasters and diseases have when it comes to the development of a metropolis.
