Watch Sandy Rip off a Chelsea Building’s Facade

10.30.12 Andy Cush

One of the more visible bits of destruction during Hurricane Sandy’s rampage through New York last night happened at this apartment building at 92 8th Avenue, between 14th and 15th Streets, the facade of which fell clean off, completely exposing the residents inside. YouTube user MarkLeeTx, who seems to live on the same block as the damaged building, managed to capture the collapse on video. The action starts at about :40.

According to the FDNY, no one was hurt or trapped inside the building.
