Whoa-- that storm last night must have been worse than we thought: the scaffolding that wrapped 270 Lafayette completely flipped over! Verbose Coma, our favorite SoHo correspondents, were on the scene, and snapped a few pictures-- looks like a bunch of cars got smushed:


Update: Curbed also got a good picture of the damage-- apparently the entire scaffolding was wrapped in a giant ad for Helio, which is a cellphone company of some sort. Do they get their money back if their sign explodes?
