Another New York construction accident.
The city routinely asks it’s citizens to thread by, below and through construction. Cranes fall on houses, steel falls in ball fields.
With fallible commuter logic we do our part by filing under half-assembled scaffolding or pinning ourselves between heavy equipment and heavy traffic. Why don’t we cross the street? Go around the block?
I once shared the crosswalk at 9th Ave and 15th St with a 30″ pavement cutter. A utility crew worked it’s way across the intersection in bursts, cutting with the light in front of cars and along side pedestrians.
Life is cheap compared to the city’s evolution and our urgent routines.
