Wall Collapse Follow-Up

Brooklyn 11211 has more on yesterday's mishap at 48 North 1st Street in Williamsburg, caused by construction next door on a seven-story residential building: "As Curbed alluded to, the new building under construction next door was pouring concrete for a side wall. This side wall was supposed to abut against 48 North 1st, but when the concrete started pouring, the end wall of the old building did not hold. As a result, the end wall at the third floor collapsed, dumping all of the concrete into the building. Most important, no one was hurt (and there were people in the building when this happened)." Brownstoner has some photos from the scene. [Brooklyn 11211; previously]
