Ward Bakery Crumbles a Little, Linkage Included

We don't know if the collapse of a parapet at the Ward Bakery--which is being demolished by Forest City Ratner in its effort to clear blocks of property in Prospect Heights--was a harbinger of things to come or not. What we do know is that (a). it's fortunate no one was hurt except for some cars, (b). 350 people that live near the building--in particular residents of a shelter--were displaced and (c). there is continuing reaction from those concerned with the demolitions (which only began on Monday) and with the impact of the project on the community if it goes forward.

Here are links to some of the Ward's Parapet Collapse coverage:
