This is happening frequently in Manhattan - 2-3 in the last year alone. Is the inspection process the same as always?

Exactly what I was thinking, has someone been paid to look the other way during inspections, etc.

Properly maintained, these giant cranes are amazing. But all it takes is a small imbalance of weight to have a disaster. That’s why crane operators make huge salaries. Recent NYC reports suggest high winds may be an issue.
