BLOW TO TIMES
By CHUCK BENNETT, NY Post
Gusty winds caused Midtown mischief yesterday by breaking windows at The New York Times building and knocking down a scaffolding pole at the new Bank of America headquarters across from Bryant Park.
The Times' new office at 620 Eighth Ave. took a bit of a beating at around 1 p.m., according to the Department of Buildings. Winds cracked a window on the 22nd floor, and broke windows on the 10th and sixth floors, inspectors found. Ceramic rails on the exteriors of the 40th and 38th floors also were damaged.
This is the second time now... sounds like either poor architectural design, poor workmanship, or cheap materials at the Gray Lady.
