Downed light pole on St. Mark's Place

Thanks to EV Grieve reader Steven Matthews for sending along these shots from earlier this evening... here on St. Mark's Place between Second Avenue and Third Avenue... it appears a light pole fell ... no word on any injuries...

i live on this block. it looked like the bottom of the pole where i bent off had rusted. i took some pics last nite of it close up. i wonder if it rusted from dogs peeing on it all these years?

someone who saw it said it didn't fall over in one fell swoop but it started bending and slowly over an hour or 2 came down.

and i wonder if city engineers inspect such poles when they reach a certain age?
