Yes, this is reminding me somewhat of the John Hancock Tower in Boston when its glass was falling out.

Glass panel falls from NY Bank of America building
17 September 2008

NEW YORK (AP) - A glass panel near the top of a Bank of America skyscraper in New York City has fallen more than 50 stories onto the street below and shattered. No injuries have been reported.

The panel came from the facade of a tower under construction in midtown Manhattan across from Bryant Park. Crews have been cleaning glass shards from the area.

General contractor Tishman Realty & Construction says no work was taking place in the area from where the glass fell. The cause is being investigated.

A similar incident at the building in August injured two people. Last October, a bucket attached to a crane fell from the top of the building, injuring eight people.

Bank of America Corp. has made headlines this week for buying embattled financial management firm Merrill Lynch & Co. for $50 billion.
