This video covers the crazy story of an engineering/construction miscalculation that threatened the structural integrity of a New York City skyscraper in 1978, including a close call with a hurricane. The situation was kept secret from the public for 20 years.

The Youtube video is in 3 parts, this is the first. Parts 2 and 3 should show automatically in the "next video" section.
