The Norman Blumberg Towers in North Philly are officially no more. Two of the three residential towers were imploded Saturday, March 19 at 7:15 a.m. to make way for a new Philadelphia Housing Authority (PHA) development.
Plenty of people rose bright and early to capture the implosion, and shared it on social media. Watch some videos posted on Instagram below, because we know it's important to start your Monday off with a bang. (Note: We suggest you turn the volume down.)
