The top of the facade on this brownstone at 424 Jefferson Avenue in Bed Stuy collapsed early yesterday evening, a reader let us know. Luckily, no one was hurt, he said. We managed to snap a few pics this morning. The debris was mostly all cleaned up by then.
We’re not sure what caused the collapse — it could have been a falling tree branch — but the owners appear to have been working on adding height to the top floor, from what we can tell from PropertyShark photos from January and earlier. Click through for more photos. The one at the end is from our tipster, and was taken just before the collapse, he said.
Did anyone see this last night or does anyone have more info about what happened?
