    Buildings investigators are looking into what caused part of a facade of a West Village building to crumble Tuesday afternoon. 

    The cornice over three buildings at 309 Bleecker Street collapsed and crashed to the ground, the Department of Buildings confirmed. 

    The FDNY said no one was hurt.

    Witnesses said they heard a large boom as the debris fell onto the sidewalk. One remarked it was a "miracle" no one was walking on the store-lined street, saying a pedestrian could have easily been killed by the falling chunks of the building.
