Less than a month after a helicopter crashed into the Hudson River, NYPD reports that a helicopter has crashed into a high-rise building on 5th Avenue at 50th Street in Manhattan.

Traffic is being diverted…

The building appears to be on fire…

The location is an extremely busy area of midtown Manhattan.

The building is being evacuated.

Very heavy NYFD and NYPD presence.

Gov Cuomo is on the scene…
