Falling bricks caused evacuations in December 2015

The brick façade of a condominium building on the Upper East Side still isn’t fixed more than two years after it collapsed, a new lawsuit claims.

The façade is at the St. Tropez condo on 340 East 64th Street, where hundreds of bricks fell from the roof in December 2015, according to the New York Post. Two buildings were evacuated, and traffic was shut down for a week on five blocks.

A group of six residents called is now suing the board over its inaction. They argue in their suit that the board only did emergency repairs mandated by the Department of Buildings right after the collapse, and instead of doing more fixes later, they just issued assessments for $6.8 million to renovate the lobby and social room.
