The FDNY evacuated residents from 28 Avenue B on April 16 after debris started falling from the building's fifth floor ... The six-story building that houses Croxley Ales on the ground floor was evacuated about 3:15 p.m. after a crack was discovered running all the way up the back of the building.
Joe Ferrante, an FDNY battalion chief, told DNAinfo that excavation for a 6-floor apartment building next door "possibly contributed" to the damage at No. 28.
In any event, according to the Croxley Ales Facebook page, the bar will be back open Thursday for the first time since April 16.
Per their giddy message:

No word when residents are moving back into No. 28. According to DOB records, there is still a partial Stop Work Order on 26 Avenue B.
