The Sky is Falling on Montague Street!

The underside of a balcony hanging high over the Haagen-Daazs on Montague Street near Henry Street in Brooklyn Heights just plain fell off Monday early evening. A bit of it landed on the sidewalk right next to the bench outside Haagen-Dazs; the rest got stuck in a tree. Luckily, no one was hit.

The fire department had to send a man up the long ladder (above) to knock the debris from the tree before it fell on somebody. The gathering crowd was quite concerned that Haagen-Dazs would be closed for the rest of the night, but the swift action of the fire department made that unlikely.
