Falling bricks kill a baby
From the Daily News:
An adorable 2-year-old girl who was hit when bricks rained down from a crumbling Upper West side building died Monday, police sources said.
Greta Greene was sitting with her grandmother when she was struck by the terra-cotta bricks that fell from the 8th floor of 305 West End Ave. Sunday, the sources said.
The Esplanade was hit with two Department of Building complaints right after the incident. Department of Building inspectors said the owner failed "to maintain the property in safe and code-compliant manner."
