N.Y. Building Sites Reopen, Carefully, in Sign of Life Gearing Back Up
More than 5,200 construction projects have reopened in New York City, offering a glimpse of new routines in postpandemic workplaces.

By Matthew Haag

On the Far West Side of Manhattan, construction workers start every morning with a thermal forehead scan to take their temperatures. On service elevators at the high-rise development, they stand on floor markings to maintain social distancing. And when deliveries arrive, drivers stay behind the wheel while the haul is unloaded.

City building inspectors often show up unannounced, issuing warnings and fines if safety procedures are being ignored.

The construction industry, an engine that has helped power New York City’s tremendous growth in recent years, is slowly starting to reawaken, offering one of the first optimistic economic glimmers as the city struggles to recover.

Across the city, laborers are wearing respiratory masks not only while working but also during breaks. They are disinfecting their tools, something rarely done before, and contractors have installed additional hand-washing stations.

The most significant changes, perhaps, could still be on the way. Representatives of labor groups and contractor companies are pushing the city to permit 24-hour construction at some locations to reduce the number of laborers on site at any one time.

Roughly 5,200 construction projects were operating again as of Tuesday, from the Spiral office tower at Hudson Yards on the Far West Side to One Vanderbilt near Grand Central Terminal and home renovations in Far Rockaway, Queens.

Echoing the already recognizable view from NJ & the Hudson of the Empire State Building in between the towers of Manhattan West and Hudson Yards, this is my first time noticing the view of the towers below Madison Square Park from a slightly different angle. Thank goodness it isn't the angle of the Madison Square Park Tower where it's wearing a shitty crown of mechanical equipment. :tup::rolleyes:
