Kingsbridge residents say they no longer feel safe in their homes after numerous bricks came crashing down from their building on Monday morning.
Scaffolding is now covering the entryway at 2663 Heath Ave. Ida Corporan, a resident on the building’s 10th floor for over 40 years was there when it started.
“I ran out because I said, ‘What if the whole building comes down?’”, said Corporan. “Where am I going to be, under the bricks?”
