CurbedWire Special Midday Edition: Look Out Below

New, 7 comments

Ah, the bright sunshine following yesterdays gloom, ice and rain. One might keep any eye out while enjoying it, however, as a number of buildings have developed issues with falling ice (and in one case, dropped steel) today:

1) Goldman Sachs Building: Not ice, but a construction crane dropped a load of steel and crushed some construction trailers, injuring at least one worker. [1010 Wins]

2) New York Times Building: Following up on an earlier CurbedWire item about falling ice, a reader who sent the original "NYT building is raining ice" information adds: "Entrances on 40th and 41st Streets are closed. Rumors of a crack in glass overhang at 8th Avenue entrance." [CurbedWire Inbox]

3) Bank of America Tower: Ice is coming down here too. A tipster emails: "Looks like the LEED certified bofa tower is also helping to stop congestion on sixth avenue during the busy holiday season by having organic chunks of ice fall from the spire..." Another writes to ask: "What is going on at the Bank of America Building? things keep falling." [CurbedWire Inbox]

4) HBO Building: Yes, there are news reports of more ice coming down on Sixth Avenue. [CurbedWire Staff]

UPDATE, 12:45 PM: Of the Bank of America Building ice fest, a special correspondent reports "6th ave is closed between 42nd and 43rd because ice is falling off that big ass building they’ve been building. I saw a messenger guy who walked passed the police line come fucking inches away from getting smacked in the head. Everyone on the corner was like, 'Holy fuck!' And the messenger said, and I quote, 'God’s on my side today.'"
