“Out walking Sunday morning and saw this. It appears that one of the saved buildings that was moved from its original foundation, then moved again to its new location,adjacent to the new medical college headquarters building, has collapsed! I asked the construction guy, putting up the caution tape, what happened but his only response was “I can’t discuss it”.

“Spotted this on the walk to work this morning. One of the facades of a building that was move at the NY Ave Assoc. Of American Medical Colleges collapsed overnight. It’s cool to watch them move and preserve these buildings so it’s kind of a bummer that this happened.”
