Universal has created a detailed look at the reconstruction of New York Street, which was all but destroyed by an electrical fire in the summer of 2008.
In a video shot by Universal and narrated by topper Ron Meyer, Steven Spielberg and other industry vets discuss the multi-million dollar "Phoenix" Project which aimed at rebuilding Universal's infamous production space that was home to such films as "Back to the Future," "The Sting" and "Blues Brothers."
In addition to burning down New York Street and Universal Studios' King Kong ride, the 2008 fire also destroyed nearly 100% of the studio's archived prints. The Courthouse from "Back to the Future" was also lost.
Investigators concluded that the fire was caused by workers repairing a roof on one of the lot's faux streetscapes.
