On Saturday, there were reports of windows falling from a Tribeca building, likely due to the strong winds, and now it turns out the building in question was the new Goldman Sachs headquarters at Murray and West Streets. And it's not the first time things have been falling from the nearly finished 43-story building.

The Post reports that the incident "[snarled] traffic for more than two hours [Saturday afternoon], authorities said," forcing the closure of West Street because that's where the glass landed. Luckily no one was injured, but the Department of Buildings issued a stop work order (the initial call: "SSM REPORTED A HUGE PIECE OF GLASS FELL FROM THE 38TH FLOOR, ANOTHER PIECE OF GLASS IS [LOOSENING] AND IS IN DANGER OF FALLING") for the site's "failure to safeguard."

The Tribeca Tribune says the "accident delayed by a day the opening of Battery Park City's first ice skating rink, originally set for 10 a.m. that morning. The temporary rink is installed in the Battery Park City ball fields, just a few hundred feet from the tower."

In December 2007, 14,000 pounds of steel fell from a crane and onto a construction trailer—nearly killing an architect inside (he is now paralyzed). In May of last year, a piece of steel fell from the building onto the nearby ball fields (where the rink is now) and, just this past April, a hammer fell from the site onto a cab—no one was injured in those two incidents, but one resident said, "This is a wakeup call. Every morning. It's unnerving walking through the site." And, for what it's worth, glass windows have repeatedly fallen from Bank of America's new building in Midtown.
