Dashed Arrow William Meyer

Part of the ceiling collapsed at the Borough Hall subway station in Brooklyn this afternoon.

The incident happened around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday. Witness Eric Chan wrote on Twitter that he heard a loud bang, then saw the collapsed ceiling at the front end of the Manhattan-bound 4/5 train platform. A police spokesperson says that there was one minor injury in the partial collapse.

William Meyer told Gothamist that the station was being roped off when he took the photos below.

The MTA says that northbound 4 and 5 trains are currently bypassing Borough Hall because of the fallen debris. Check back for updates as more details fall into place.
