NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Falling bricks shut down busy Lexington Avenue in Murray Hill late Wednesday afternoon.

As Joe Biermann reported from Chopper 2, the bricks and part of the façade fell from the building at the southwest corner of 38th Street and Lexington Avenue.

The bricks rained down onto the sidewalk and street.

The FDNY went up to the top of the building and tended to all the loose bricks, Biermann reported.

The sidewalk in front of the building was closed late Wednesday, and one southbound lane was closed on Lexington Avenue.
