Building Facade Collapses In Manhattan At 8th And 14th Street

A four-story building facade has collapsed at 8th Ave and 14th Street in Manhattan.

No one was injured, though there were people inside when the facade fell, NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly said on CNN.

The building at 92 8th Ave in Chelsea included multiple high-end apartments, which rented for $4,395/month according to Huff Po’s Meg Robertson. A restaurant called Muscle Maker Grill was on the ground floor.

Similar collapses have been reported in Brooklyn and Queens, plus there’s the hanging crane in Midtown
