NEW YORK(CBSNewYork) — A bank safe deposit box is supposed to be one of the safest places to store your valuables and important documents.
Now, dozens of customers in Manhattan are worried about the fate of their boxes following a massive fire at a Citibank branch on 111th Street and Broadway in Morningside Heights.
Peter Szabo said that he showed up to the bank on Monday hoping to learn about the fate of his safe deposit box.
“I just wanna make sure I can get my hands on it,” Szabo told CBS 2’s Don Champion, “You know, it’s a big thick steel door and the stuff that I had I happened to seal in plastic bags.”
“There were bonds in there and if it got too hot, I’m wondering about that,” Maxine Phillips told WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell.
