By Angela Paik, The Washington Post, January 11, 2000. “Demolition of the Rosenstock building, which housed three businesses and three apartments, is expected to last three or four more days. The 105-year-old building was destroyed in the six-alarm fire, which authorities believe was ignited by a discarded cigarette behind Main Street Blues, a restaurant and bar next to the Rosenstock building.” (Submitted on December 21, 2017, by Allen C.
