I wouldn't say eager per se... More like they didn't do their due diligence or maybe they were getting their hands greased as well.

I noticed 2 areas in the Central Bronx that seemed to have mostly survived the arson wave.

The areas near the 174th St 2 station and the Whitlock Ave 6 station

Mott Haven is really hit or miss, large chunks of it were destroyed but there are still blocks full of original architecture.

Whitlock was just North of where the devastaion was. South of Whitlock across the Bronx River begins the Hunts PT area.
