The Pyramid Companies, owners of Syracuse’s Carousel Center and its long-talked-about expansion, have a mess to clean up after the partial collapse of a parking garage at their Galleria Mall in Poughkeepsie. Times Record-Herald fotog Ken Bizzigotti documented the damage.
Reports are that the weight of snow, plowed into high, heavy piles brought down the structure.
“As to who cleared the near foot of snow and made the decision to let it sit on a weight bearing structure, mall management wasn’t answering questions.
Joseph Castaldo, Mall manager: “I said no comment.”
Some cars were crushed in the collapse. As of Friday morning, it had not been determined whether people were inside any of them, but no one had been reported missing.
