Cruisin’ and Dustin’ in Red Hook

A section of the ceiling of the cruise ship terminal under construction in Red Hook collapsed this morning around 9 a.m.

“I don’t know how major it was. There were four workers who were treated for minor injuries–dust in their eyes. No serious injuries were sustained, thank goodness,” Craig Hammerman, district manager of Community Board 6, told us.

This was where the Queen Mary II was supposed to dock April 15. It is not clear whether this incident will delay the opening.

More to come.
