The owner of the Upper East Side building that was struck by a crane when it collapsed on May 30 is suing the crane’s owner, operator, and lessee for $100 million. The crane collapse killed two people and damaged 1749 First Avenue, a residential building. Residents were forced to evacuate for several days. First & 91 LLC, the owner of 1749 First Avenue, cites “recklessness, carelessness, and negligence” as the cause of the collapse. New York Crane & Equipment is the subject of a criminal investigation.
