    A building near the intersection of 123rd and 7th has collapsed.

    City officials have halted construction work at a Harlem building after a concrete wall partially collapsed into a pizza parlor next door, hurting 11 people.
        
    The Fire Department says five construction workers and six other people were taken to a hospital with minor injuries after the wall fell around 3 p.m. Friday. It's unclear what caused the collapse.

         Buildings Department spokeswoman Kate Lindquist says engineers are inspecting the 12-story building where construction work was under way. Possible phone numbers for the owners rang unanswered Friday evening.
        
    The Buildings Department also is examining the five-story building next door on West 123rd Street.
        
    Lindquist says the stop-work order will remain in effect until it's safe for construction to continue.
