The 3 level parking garage in my apartment property 300 Prospect Ave, Hackensack, NJ collapsed this morning. The incident happened in the parking area under the high rise tower building. I live in the mid rise tower but the parking there is accessible via the parking area of the high rise tower. I used live in the high rise tower till Jan this year and moved to the mid rise since. Here are some pictures from within the parking garage that I took from my iPhone, the view of the rubble and devastation. I sent these to News 12 NJ as well and they showed some of it on air as V-clips.
