Correct me if I'm wrong (and I probably am) but a lot of those old buildings are, from the outside in, pretty much two layers of brick, insulation, studs and wall.

I hope this means that they don't close down Salad King for an extended period of time.

Brick, Concrete, insulation, and then dry wall. When brick blocks are exposed to damp tempratures they take in mositure, once it gets cold the moisture freezes and therefore, the bricks expand which causes them to crack and eventually collapse after several decades. Maintenence workers have to apply special coatings every year to protect these bricks. However, it looks like they didn't keep up with that here.
