The once-glorious Broken Angel — hand-built over several decades by Clinton Hill artist Arthur Wood — is being dismantled piece by piece, thanks to a court order in May.
The Buildings Department, which once had Wood taken away from the Downing Street ziggurat in handcuffs, said its top floors violated zoning code. Wood still hopes to raise enough money to resurrect the Angel in some form or another — and give him a roof (however rickety) over his head.
