Some critics are laying the blame for Friday’s fatal crane accident on the Upper East on Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his pro-development administration. Over the past five years the Department of Buildings has issued 23.3 percent more construction permits, rising to 86,915 in 2007 from 70,515 in 2002. The number of construction deaths this year has reached 15.
