While the decision to pull the plug on Coney Island's Bank Building is irreversible, it's current half-demolished state is now frozen for the time being. Amusing the Zillion reports that they've postponed their funeral service for the historic building, which was expected to be nothing but dust in two weeks time, because the Department of Buildings has issued a stop work order.

The Building Enforcement Safety Team issued the order due to debris falling onto adjacent buildings. ATZ reports that their "source said a wall coming down is shared with an adjacent property owner who must pay to build a new wall before work can proceed."

The demo permit is good through June 11th of next year, so the Bank Building may remain as-is for a while. Full stop work order can be seen on the DoB's site.
