ALL construction involving cranes should be stopped pending an independent review that should not involve Bloomberg and other city hacks/agencies. Btw. where is an OSHA order to cease all crane work? Obviously, there needs to be more competent and thorough and third party reviews of these ops--far beyond what city inspectors can provide. Too bad if the resulting price increases in these yuppie high rises will force buyers to reduce their auto sound systems to only 18 speakers from the standard 24. The priority is the city residents, not the builders.

When are these accidents going to end??? I thought the city had added additional inspectors to correct these problems.
My sympathies to the person killed
