From the Daily News:
Since January 2008, the Buildings Department has issued stop-work orders 12 times at 111 Lawrence St., hitting contractors with 38 claims for unsafe conditions, falling objects and fire hazards.
Eleven violations remain open and contractors on the job face $78,200 in fines, records show.
On Wednesday, the city slapped the latest stop-work order on the planned 51-story building after hardhat Ronald McGovern fell three stories while trying to stabilize a crane's load. He landed in a dumpster and survived with minor injuries.
The city cited crane operator Pinnacle Industries for unsafe use of a crane. The contractor running the job, Bovis Lend Lease, was cited for unsafe conditions.
Perils at the Brooklyn Tower included frightening crane incidents that continued even after subcontractors were cited.
