New York City Henry Hudson highway retaining wall collapses
Thursday, May 12, 2005
According to New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, no-one was injured, and there was no vehicular or pedestrian traffic at the time of the collapse. Several parked cars were buried under rubble and debris, which spilled out across Riverside Drive where it merges with the northbound lanes of the parkway and onto the parkway itself.
The mayor said that cleanup of the wall will begin next week.
