New York City’s Dept. of Buildings is inspecting the 52-story New York Times Building after seven cracked windows were discovered during the second week of the month. Architect Renzo Piano Building Workshop maintains the windows were damaged during construction and are awaiting repair. DOB engineers believe the cracks were caused by high winds. The newspaper’s headquarters, with a ceramic-tube sunscreen covering its facade, has been in the news two other times since last month. First, a broken window plummeted 17 stories on a windy day. Then, the morning after a snowstorm, an ice shower rained off the sunscreen, pelting passersby.
