Partial Collapse On Columbia St.

A partial collapse took place at a low-rise commercial building at 185 Columbia St. around 10:30 a.m. Friday morning. A small apartment building next door at 183 Columbia St., which also contains a live poultry market, was temporarily evacuated, but no firefighters or civilians were injured, according to an FDNY spokesman. The building is on the corner of DeGraw Street, which has been closed for more than a year between Columbia and Hicks streets due to construction work on the Gowanus Canal Flushing Tunnel. The closed-off street is also home to a colony of stray cats, who are no doubt attracted by the presence of the chicken market.
