Sidewalk bridge collapses on the Bowery
[EVG photo from Thursday]
The sidewalk bridge arrived last Wednesday ahead of the demolition of Salvation Army's former East Village Residence on the Bowery at East Third Street.
Earlier this evening, a portion of the structure came crashing down, nearly blocking the entrance to the 7-Eleven next door… and spilling into the street…
EVG regular Pinhead shared these photos … and said that the FDNY responded within 2 minutes … thankfully, no one was injured …
The Residence closed in August 2008. It will be torn down to make way for a 13-floor residential building.
