Watch This Apartment Building on Governors Island Go “Boom!” and Implode

A 45-year old former U.S. Coast Guard apartment block, abandoned since 1996, is perfectly demolished by “implosion” over the course of about 20 seconds. 250 lbs of explosives were used. The 11-story building was removed to make way for a park.
