BREAKING: Collapse and Rescue at 316 Bergen Street


    [nggallery id=”22314″ template=galleryview]

    A reader who lives across the street from a development site on Bergen Street just filed the following report:

    About 1:30PM today, part of the 3-story building being demolished at the 316 Bergen site apparently gave way unexpectedly, and 12 FDNY and NYPD vehicles responded within minutes. One man was bandaged and led away on foot to an ambulance, apparently with minor injuries. Another man (apparently uninjured, but stranded at the top of the partly-demolished building) had to be rescued by the cherry-picker on a ladder truck.

    As you may recall, this is to be the site of a new seven-story Karl Fischer building. We’ll have more photos up shortly.
