Building Falling Down

I was walking down Houston near Broadway on Saturday night when I saw this mess: one side of the street was closed after this building started to collapse. It was scheduled to be demolished by developers to make way for a luxury high-rise apartment building, but "an unspecified violation" stopped it. And then it started to go on its own. An observer told the New York Times he heard "a big bang." When I happened by the fire department and an impromptu demolition crew were helping the building down.

Gothamist says the FDNY used the building for training in February.
