A retaining wall near the George Washington Bridge collapsed, creating a landslide of dirt onto the Henry Hudson Parkway. Dirtslide, we guess, since it's not quite the California kind. The firefighters were called to the area below Riverside Drive and 181st Street to remove dirt, which has buried some cars. No word on injuries yet, so we hope no one was near the cars. So, if you're headed back home and take the West Side Highway, don't...and if you need to take the GWB, take tunnels instead.
ABC 7 says Mayor Bloomberg is on his way to the scene. And that mass transit is suggested.
