    NEW YORK – People living in four separate units of a Brooklyn apartment building were forced to evacuate Friday after part of façade suddenly crumbled.

    It happened around 4:15 p.m. at Tivoli Towers on Crown Street in Crown Heights.

    The Department of Buildings says a section of a wall broke away from 33rd floor of the building. Debris landed on the roof of another section of the building.

    No one was hurt, but the impact caused cracks to apartments on the 22nd floor and forced the evacuation of four units.

    Residents told CBS2 the building has had water issues before and repairs were being planned.

    “This is a building that’s had chronic failures for years and years, and we’ve known of them and we have advocated along with the tenants for better conditions in this building. It’s my understanding that the building was about to undertake some work before this incident occurred,” New York City Council member Crystal Hudson said.

    The DOB says the building is safe, but the cause of the partial collapse is under investigation.
