Update: The planned new location never opened and that building was sold in September of 2022.
The Karpeles Manuscript Library was gutted by fire March 26. I arrived to see the tail end of the conflagration, when fire fighters were helping remove valuable objects from the building. The building was the former Third Christian Scientist Church, one of a whole ring of houses of worship built at the beginning of the Twentieth Century around the city. It was left in ruins.
