Was anyone delayed by the wall collapse on Lexington in the 30’s today?
Apparently, there was a 10 foot wall that collapsed at a construction site. Emergency officials evacuated a neighboring building as a precaution because they feared that the ground movement might make the foundation of that building unstable. It wasn’t really that bad though.
Then they ordered the MTA to slow train traffic on the 4, 5, and 6 through the area. The train vibration can cause more ground settling.
Just wondering if there really was a big delay or not. I’d imagine not. Probably just right when it happened.
People in my office were flipping out that another building had collapsed. Uhhhhh no. Go back to work.

The 4 train had been experiencing massive delays just before the “building collapse” due to signal problems at 125th.
