Building Collapses Without Warning in New York City

 

A four-story building on 131st Street in East Harlem partially collapsed Wednesday, crushing two cars. The structure was under construction and abandoned at the time of the collapse. One of the car owners said he was minutes from being crushed.

One witness said, "I saw the building! Like there was smoke everywhere, it was just down on the road in a matter of seconds." Others said the ground shook moments before the entire east section of the building collapsed.

The construction company working at the site was issued a partial stop work order three weeks ago and was cited for not having a permit for demolition work being done. The news fell on the heels of subway flooding, delaying passengers for hours.

  haha  
 
Sorry, but I read the title and pictured the building saying: "WARNING, I AM ABOUT TO COLLAPSE".
My apologies for the dumb joke.

Do buildings normaly send out emails and put up posters when they're set to collapse

  It would have been handy to have  
 
Rudy Giuliani around because he would have been notified that the building was about to collapse.

No, the demolition companies send out the notices. You see, buildings can't make phone calls or write letters.
