Evacuations in midtown after FDNY, DOB visits

Two apartment buildings in Midtown were evacuated yesterday after the fire department was called in to check on a potential building collapse, officials said.

A construction project at 311 W. 39th St. apparently jeopardized the structure of the nearby buildings enough for officials from the city Department of Buildings, an agency recently roiled by the resignation of its commissioner, Patricia Lancaster, to call for the evacuations.

The papers should tally up how many collapses and evacuations have occurred during the Bloomberg administration compared to others. That would be an interesting set of stats, I bet.
