HELL’S KITCHEN, NY — A building partially collapsed in Hell’s Kitchen Sunday. Firefighters were called to the under-construction building at West 52nd Street and Eighth Avenue just before noon.
No injuries were reported.
The city’s Buildings Department last week deemed the vacant building “unsafe,”WCBS-TV reported, and warned it could potentially collapse. The agency also ordered two adjacent businesses to leave the premises because they were located in a “collapse zone.”
West 52nd Street was closed to vehicles and pedestrians Sunday, police said.
