building in lower manhattan collapses

planes buzzing downtown nyc & now a building collapses ...
is this all starting to seem somewhat familiar?

building in lower manhattan collapsesfrom dpa: New York authorities on Thursday investigated a rundown five-storey building that collapsed in Lower Manhattan without causing any injuries, as it appeared unoccupied. The city's department of buildings said the building was under renovation and collapsed before dawn. The debris covered several vehicles. News reports said the building's owner had applied to demolish the most of the old building before it collapsed, after the structure had apparently violated several building codes before the accident.
