Trump Soho Collapses

January 14, 2008 – 12:19 pm

I work at the corner of Spring and Varick. Next door to the new Trump building that’s going up. When
my coworker heard/saw the collapse, he yelled “oh s**t!”. I sit right next to the window, so i turned
around and started seeing large chunks falling to the ground. We looked up and saw this:

broken building

notice that a good chunk of the 42nd floor collapsed.

Norman, one of our friends and coworkers, saw the debris fall from above about 10ft in front of him.

We’ve been watching the ambulances and fire trucks come and go. So far we think that one person
died and a few others have been injured.
