Crane Breaks Windows on WTC Tower, Memorial Temporarily Closed


A crane lifting a beam struck and broke windows at 4 World Trade Center around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, officials said.

No one was injured, but the Sept. 11 memorial was temporarily closed as a precaution due to falling glass.

The crane was lifting a beam when it struck the 72-story tower from around its 45th to 46th floors, Buildings Department officials said.

On Monday, the final beam of 4 World Trade was lifted into place in a solemn ceremony that officials described as a symbol of New York’s resilience.
