Retaining wall collapses on northbound side of Henry Hudson Parkway

A retaining wall along the Henry Hudson Parkway in upper Manhattan collapsed Thursday, burying parked cars under a massive mound of dirt, trees and debris.

Fire department personnel were called to the area where Riverside Drive meets the Henry Hudson Parkway at 4 p.m. Firefighters removed debris and tree branches from the parkway's northbound lanes.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg says it does not appear anyone was injured during the incident.
