Crane Plumets, Heron Looks Away With Embarassment

The second construction crane collapse in Manhattan this year. Two people dead this time.
Last time, several city administrators resigned in disgrace, or had criminal charges pressed against seems like the zeal for building new buildings and creating more wealth on the island of all islands is getting the better of its inhabitants. I hope that this is the last large-scale accident for a long time, and then new safety regulations are passed to ensure that cranes are kept more stable, or shortened, or whatever restriction is necessary to ensure I could walk on the Upper East Side without having to nervously look skyward from time to time.
