A section of the cornice at 777 West End Avenue fell to the ground on Tuesday morning, and firefighters grabbed another section, according to a witness.
Firefighters were called to the building near 98th Street at 8:57 a.m., according to an FDNY spokesman. One section of the building had fallen and another was dangling, our tipster Paul wrote. A firefighter was on the roof grabbing the loose material. No one was reported injured, FDNY said.
The building was built in 1920, according to Streeteasy.
Two years ago, the city issued a violation when a large section of the cornice of a Riverside Drive building fell off.
