Build-It-Back project topples over in Brooklyn
A Sandy-damaged home in Brooklyn that was undergoing construction under the city's Build It Back program collapsed Wednesday, just as a family was getting ready to move back in, neighbors say.
The home at 70 Beacon Court in Gerritsen Beach was badly damaged during the 2012 storm, and was finally being repaired, according to neighbors.
It toppled over Wednesday, leaving beams sticking in the air and separating the floor from its foundation.
