Crane accidents are always big news, especially when they occur in a crowded urban environment, such as our city. Our city experienced two significant crane collapses in 2019 that were deemed to be the fault of United Crane & Rigging Company, a firm located in Long Island. After an investigation that began with a collapse that occurred on July 30, the city's Department of Buildings (DOB) has assessed the firm a significant fine and has halted all of its work in the city.
