We were walking up in Gramercy before and noticed that the police had blocked off Irving Place between 15th and 16th Street. We asked an officer on the scene what happened-- he said a piece of the wall of the building across from Washington Irving fell off. First reports indicated that someone was hurt, but we were unable to verify that. Interesting coincidence: this is directly across the street from the notorious "stooling" incident three years ago. Remind us to always wear a helmet when walking on that block!
