    Part of a ceiling collapsed inside the Borough Hall subway station Wednesday afternoon, sending chunks of concrete and bricks raining onto the platform, and leaving a light fixture dangling overhead.

    The FDNY says a 50-year-old man sustained a minor injury to the shoulder when the ceiling caved in; photos posted to social media showed the pile of debris taped off as police and firefighters responded. 

    Service was interrupted on the northbound 4 and 5 trains while police and firefighters responded, but resumed by 6 p.m. Riders should still expect delays.
