ATLANTIC YARDS BLDG. COLLAPSE

NY Post
By Rich Calder

The Post allots 90 words for yesterday's partial collapse of the Ward Bakery building:

Part of a building targeted for demolition to make way for the Atlantic Yards Brooklyn arena project collapsed yesterday, raining bricks down on parked cars and leaving 350 homeless people without a shelter.

No one was injured, and FDNY officials said there was no sign of foul play.

Councilwoman Letitia James and others called for an investigation and a halt to the demolition of at least 15 buildings.

Huge cement chunks of a parapet atop the five-story former Ward Bread Bakery came crashing down on Pacific Street at about 9:45 a.m.
