Bricks and Debris Plummet from East 63rd and 1st Avenue

Imagine if, as you were walking down the street, a building on the Upper East Side tore itself apart and rained bricks down upon you. That's what happened last night on the corner of First Avenue and East 63rd street, where a two-story by 100-foot section of facade tore itself off, throwing debris out on the street.

Unfortunately, this has become a too-common occurrence in New York. Greta Greene, a 2-year-old, was killed by bricks raining down on her and her grandmother from a building at 305 West End Avenue back in May. The investigation into the death lead to the arrest of a licensed building engineer and detailed recommendations that the Department of Buildings must undertake to prevent this kind of tragedy from happening. But again, as we see, the facades of buildings of New York continue to be dangerous to passers-by.
