Accident Stops Deutsche Bank Demolition

The Deutsche Bank building at 130 Liberty Street, which has so stubbornly refused to come down since being damaged on 9/11 six years ago, came down a little too quickly this morning. A 15-foot piece of steel pipe fell from the 35th floor and cut through the roof of a fire station next-door, according to a press release from the Lower Manhattan Development Corp. Two firefighters were treated for minor injuries and released.

Demolition, meanwhile, has stopped again as an investigation into the cause of the accident is pursued.
