GOVERNOR’S ISLAND, New York — What goes up, must come down.

That’s exactly what happened Sunday morning on Governor’s Island in New York.

A large crowd gathered to watch demolition experts remove an 11-story apartment building. The now vacant structure formerly housed coast guard families.

It took 200 lbs. of dynamite and only 10 seconds to reduce the building to rubble.

The city plans to clean out the space and transform it into a new park.
