The attack of One Ten 3rd, the Toll Brothers' development in the Upper East Village that unloaded part of its crane onto the street below Friday afternoon, appears to have been caused by faulty hydraulics. Violations and fines for everyone! Reports the Post,
Meanwhile, the city has issued a full stop-work order on the condo project until developer Tishman Construction can explain exactly why a giant chunk of the crane, which was being dismantled, fell 250 feet to the street below, bouncing off Third Avenue, smashing into a taxicab and injuring five people. The company must also come up with a plan describing how they intend to secure the site in the future, she said.Meantime, the listings for One Ten 3rd are still available for your perusal.
