Chelsea Building Partially Collapses [PHOTO]

A striking photo shows a building that partially collapsed in the Chelsea District of Manhattan Monday evening.

Firefighters responded to a call for cracks in a building at 92 8th Ave. When they arrived, however, they found that the entire facade had slipped from the four-story building, leaving the units fully exposed as Hurricane Sandy impacts. The incredible photo was taken by Corey Johnson, a West Side candidate for City Council.

On the first floor of the building is the Muscle Maker Grill; amazingly there were no injuries, according to the FDNY.
