Despite Lancaster’s Removal, Even More Architecture Mishaps in NYC

0602metalfalling.jpg

Well can we predict the future, or can we predict the future? After taking a wild guess that, after NY Building Commissioner Patricia Lancaster was removed from her position following last year’s crane accident, that somehow, even with a new acting commissioner in place and all of these plans to move forward in the best possible way, we had our first major accident in the middle of the month when a gigantic piece of steel feel eighteen stories and now, on last Friday morning, another major crane accident on the East Side which resulted in a person’s death and loads of investigations and potential legal action. So does this prove that sometimes these sorts of things aren’t the fault of a commissioner? We think two big headlines about building materials falling from the sky and hurdling toward innocent passersby is your answer. Somewhere, Lancaster must be feeling pretty smug.
