*sigh* only a matter of time until those crazy Tishman construction guys would have some kinda mishap. At least no one was seriously hurt or killed.

I worked on this project for 3 years.

I was in queens when this happened. I heard about the traffic backup it caused. Tough place to be doing construction, the lack of space mean even a small mistake can be tragic.
