Wow! So as it turns out, Anthony didn’t really need his alarm clock this morning. Instead he was awoken by the noise of AN ENTIRE FRIGGIN BUILDING COLLAPSING!

The building was located in downtown NYC at 69 Reade Street (between Church and Broadway), and it collapsed around 6:15 this morning. Apparently the building was undergoing major renovations, so it was unoccupied—so far, it looks like no one was hurt.

Man, does this bring new meaning to the term “wake up call” or what!?

See more killer pics (Anthony was jumping around rooftops to shoot these!), and get some more scoop here on his blog.
