HARLEM — Part of a roof collapsed at a vacant Lenox Avenue building Wednesday afternoon, authorities said.
The partial collapse occurred at the four-story building at 260 Lenox Avenue, near West 123rd Street, shortly after 2 p.m., the FDNY said.
There were no injuries reported.
The collapse appeared to occur on a portion of the roof set back from the street, officials noted.
One local resident said the building has ben vacant for about the last 15 years.
“It’s been in a real state of disrepair," said Arnold Ramcharan, 41, who lives on West 123rd Street.
A stop-work order currently exists on the property, and the address has been hit with a litany of violations from the Department of Buildings.
Most recently, on June 27, the building was cited for having its "load-bearing exterior walls compromised" and "support beams exposed to elements," according to DOB records.
The violation noted that the building was leaning slightly and that it "seems unfit/unsafe for public use."
