• I believe that this is the section of floor that collapsed.

On May 20, 2008, the Department of Buildings issued a Stop Work Order after a partial collapse of a floor during demolition. I believe that a section of the floor that runs through the center of this photo collapsed (see the note on the photo). The Atlantic Yards web cam possibly captured the moments just before and after the collapse, as well as the fire department responding to accident.

At least one worker was injured, though, thankfully not seriously.

This building is being demolished for Atlantic Yards.
