Thankfully nobody was injured in the partial collapse of a brownstone in Brooklyn, NYC
A decorative stone arch on the top of the front door of a residential brownstone in Brooklyn collapsed on the stoop and destroyed it, prompting the Department of Buildings to evacuate the building. Luckily nobody was around when the accident occurred. Three families living in the building were evacuated and temporarily relocated by the Red Cross. The owner of the building located on Carlton Avenue in Prospect Heights was issued a ticket for failure to maintain the building. The owner was also ordered to immediately install a sidewalk shed to protect pedestrians from further potential collapse and to repair the building.
