NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - A building in New Haven that was more than a century old has been torn down after several bricks fell from its facade to the sidewalk.

No one was hurt when the bricks from the decorative cornice fell from the three-story Chapel Street building on Sunday, but fire officials and engineers determined that the building was structurally unsound and had to come down.

Wrecking crews worked into Monday morning to tear down the brick building.

Paul Denz, a co-owner of the building, tells The New Haven Register that the plan was to eventually take down the dilapidated building anyways and redevelop the lot. He says he’s just glad no one was hurt.
