Residents of a Manhattan building were forced to evacuate after its facade became unstable Wednesday night.

The city Department of Buildings issued a full vacate order for 85 Christopher Street in the West Village around 5 p.m.

Residents were allowed to retrieve personal belongings with the help of emergency officials.

The Red Cross is helping four displaced families while the city examines the crumbling building. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
