McBrooklyn reports that part of a balcony at 120 Montague Street fell off last night. Some concrete hit the ground near the outdoor seating area of Haagen Daz. Other debris lodged in a tree, which the FDNY quickly cleared.
Update from BHB contributor/super photographer Marc Hermann:
The first-arriving fire company looked up at the gaping hole in the cornice, but had an important (and unanswered) question: "why are we not seeing a comparably sized chunk on the sidewalk?" Personally, I saw some soil which may very well have been from a second floor windowbox, but no massive piece of fallen structure. The verdict seemed to be that the hole was a long-standing rust-related issue. They called in the Buildings Department, though, who didn't think it necessary to declare the block a disaster zone.
