STAMFORD - A building collapse near Metro-North tracks in Manhattan brought trains to a grinding halt before the evening commute Tuesday.

No injuries were reported, but thousands of train riders were left stranded on the tracks after the FDNY asked Metro-North to stop its trains in and out of Grand Central Station around 3:30 p.m.

Despite the cancellations, people found ways to get out of New York and into southwestern Connecticut.

Service was restored shortly after 5 p.m. when two tracks were reopened. Residual delays in and out of Manhattan were experienced throughout the night.

Metro-North officials say they are expected to be back on schedule in time for the morning commute.
