Streets Close as Bricks Fall From Upper West Side Building

Streets were cordoned off Monday morning after bricks from the facade of an Upper West Side building jostled loose and crashed onto the pavement below, authorities said.

The bricks fell from a building that is apparently under construction near the intersection of 94th Street and West End Avenue at about 10:45 a.m., authorities said.

West End Avenue was closed from 93rd to 95th streets as police investigated. 

No injuries were reported.
