Smith Street Building Crumbles Somewhat
This morning, some pieces came off a building at 170 Smith Street causing some issues with subway service and attracting a large contingent of firefighters. We took these photos of the building around 5:45PM on Tuesday and, fortunately, an emergency scaffold was put up around the building yesterday so that whatever did fall came down on the scaffold rather than pedestrians. The FDNY and Building Inspectors remain on the scene. Both Curbed and Brownstoner have photos of the activity this morning. Note the woman with stroller beneath the crumbling facade on Tuesday evening, below.
