Crumblin' Down

A retaining wall on Riverside Drive over the Henry Hudson Parkway collapsed during rush hour this evening. It happened up in Washington Heights, this slowly-gentrifying neighborhood in the northern part of Manhattan.

Fortunately, there were no cars or pedestrians passing under that part of the wall at the time. There's an apartment complex that abuts the wall, and the cops ran all over it telling people to get out in two languages.

Update: The northbound lane is supposed to be closed all weekend. We would have been taking it on Sunday, so now we'll find an alternate route.

Oh well. Could be worse. Could be raining. Oh wait. It's gonna.
