From the NY Post:
Violent gusts of wind yesterday blew out windows from the 52nd floor of a luxury apartment building in Midtown, sending glass and debris raining onto the street.
The window, about 30 by 30 feet, crashed to the ground at 4:25 p.m. from 117 East 57th Street. Magician David Copperfield lives in the building but in another apartment.
No one was hurt in the building or on the ground.
About an hour earlier, bricks fell from the roof of a Harlem apartment building.
Officials were trying to determine if the wind -- which reached as high as 60 mph -- caused the incident.
Have there been increased incidents of bricks and windows committing suicide?
Also, a tree limb fell on a man's shoulder in Flushing, Queens, at around 1:10 p.m. He was taken to New York Hospital of Queens in stable condition.
