Details, comments, questions emerge about the falling parapet at the Ward Bakery

Atlantic Yards Report analyzes the media coverage of the Ward Bakery collapse:

The city's Department of Buildings has issued a violation to Forest City Ratner for failing to maintain the exterior wall of the Ward Bakery, though no shed was required. Meanwhile, more than 300 people from the adjacent homeless shelter had to evacuate, and questions remain about how and why the 200-foot stretch of the parapet fell yesterday, and what oversight agencies will do.
