A glass window panel apparently fell from a building in midtown Manhattan Thursday. A high wind warning was in effect for the city at the time, but it wasn't immediately clear if that was a contributing factor.

The FDNY says it got a call about "falling debris" at 111 W. 57th Street shortly after 6 p.m. Most of the debris was on the 58th Street side of the address, which is an 82-story luxury condo tower, according to StreetEasy.

The Department of Buildings said it appeared a previously damaged section of window, 11 feet by 2 feet, fell from the 53rd floor. The building's contractors had already been planning to replace the window, DOB said.

No injuries were reported, but traffic was disrupted in the area for a time as officials investigated.
