A New York Daily News article reveals that the Mount Morris Fire Watchtower is in danger of collapsing. The structure that was built in 1850 at the highest peak on Mount Morris Park is an official city landmark but the Parks Department has not restored it for many decades. Now $4.5 million is needed to renovate the Harlem relic but only $325,000 will be provided at this point to stabilize the structure.
