Building Collapses on Lefferts Place in Bed Stuy

Microposted Thursday, January 21 2010

Brownstoner mentioned a building had partially collapsed a couple of blocks away from me and asked if anyone could take a photo. I ran over and got the shot they're using for the post. Sadly, the Department of Buildings has now torn this house down. You could tell it was a lovely brownstone at one time though. It's hard to believe that brownstones are still destroyed because of neglect in this day and age isn't it?
