Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire[edit]

Washington Place is also the location of the Triangle shirtwaist factory fire in New York City, on March 25, 1911. There were 146 victims in all, 129 of them women. They were Russian and Sicilian, nearly all of them supporting distant families, nearly all of them terribly young. The outer building did not burn; it still stands at 23-29 Washington Place. ref: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/23/opinion/23wed4.html?_r=1&nl=todaysheadlines&emc=tha211 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triangle_Shirtwaist_Factory_fire — Preceding unsigned comment added by Alphachapmtl (talkcontribs) 16:42, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

That fire took place in New York, not Hawaii, so they are probably not the same place. More likely, there are many streets in English-speaking countries with the name of "Washington Place", and the current address at least of that event is on the one in New York City. Not sure what you are proposing. Probably that ref could be added to the fire article. Not sure if a hatnote or "See Also" might be called for. No reason for a dab page or name change until another wikipedia article on another notable entity with this name is written, I think? W Nowicki (talk) 20:51, 23 February 2011 (UTC)
