NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - A vacant house in Park Slope came crashing down just after 11 p.m. on May 17. There were no injuries reported. Seven nearby residents were displaced as a result of the collapse.
The side and rear walls of the three-story house at 217 9th Street came down with a massive boom.
The house had been vacant since January and two applications had been filed as early as April to demolish the nearly 100-year-old home.
A local resident told the NY Daily News that there were no signs the building was unstable.
It was unclear when a complete demolition would take place.
9th Street remained closed between Fourth and Third Avenues.
