Thanks to Dan for sending the photo above: “Florida Ave NE at Staples St NE. It’s the building adjacent to Fringe.”

“Well this is kind of crazy, my security camera picked up a building randomly collapsing today.
The people on the street were walking on the spot 10 seconds earlier! Luckily no one was hurt I don’t think.”
