Yesterday afternoon, a fire broke out in a century-old barn on the Dutchess County farm owned by Manhattan DA Robert Morgenthau. Yes, Morgenthau may be Manhattan's powerful DA, but he's also a farmer—sort of. His family has a working farm, Fishkill Farms. Son Josh Morgenthau, who manages the farm, said the blaze took to the barn "like kindling," and the fire's cause is being investigated. The farm is also notable for some world history: Morgenthau's father was FDR's treasury sceretary, a meeting between FDR and Winston Churchill was held at the farm. Morgenthau is retiring this year and plans to spend more time at the farm.
