Just a week after the East 91st Street crane collapse that killed two people, the Department of Buildings’ chief crane inspector, James Delayo, was arrested today for allegedly taking bribes to approve cranes and ensure that operators would pass a required licensing exam. He has also been accused of selling copies of the crane operator exam with answers for $3,000. Delayo surrendered to the city’s Department of Investigation this morning and will be arraigned tonight or tomorrow.
