Queen Lane Apartments tower reduced to rubble after Saturday morning implosion (video and photo ...

At 5:45 a.m. Saturday, a team of police officers and Philadelphia Housing Authority representatives stood outside a door in the 300 block of W. Penn St.

Clouds of dust billowed west along Queen Lane, sending observers off toward the cleaner air of home. Vehicles parked near W. Penn and Morris sts. were in dire need of a car wash.

Demolition contractors quickly broke out brooms and operated sweepers, cleaning up debris that fell onto West Queen Lane and Pulaski Ave. Insulation foam blew into the chain-link fence on the property's Penn Street side.
