Officials: Unstable Bushwick building to be torn down

Department of Buildings (DOB) officials have ordered a Bushwick apartment building demolished after it was discovered that the three-story building is leaning 15 to 20 degrees.

DOB officials allowed tenants of the Wilson Avenue building back inside only to retrieve their property.

Officials say that adjacent buildings will also be evacuated until the leaning building can be torn down.
