Giant Crane Attacks Lower Manhattan


Early last night, a 250-foot crane crashed into the top of a 25-story building on Maiden Lane, just three blocks from Wall Street, showering the ground below with bricks and stones, but fortunately, no blood. Though no injuries were reported, falling debris did cause the evacuation of nearby buildings and traffic interruptions. A complaint about a crane on the site was filed on March 8, but a violation wasn’t issued. [NYDN]
