Crane Collapse Punchlines

New, 1 comment

Another byproduct of Saturday's crane collapse at office building 80 Maiden Lane, aside from evacuations of nearby residential buildings? Irony! 80 Maiden Lane contains the headquarters of the city's Department of Investigation, which has been investigating corruption at the Department of Buildings, including the pair of crane collapses that killed nine people in 2008. But hey, the DOI spokespeople are looking on the bright side this time: "Logistically, DOI won't have to go far to gather the facts." [NYT; previously]
