New York City is re-inspecting high-rise cranes following the crane collapse that killed seven people nearly two weeks ago.

Since then, the city has shut down several cranes for violations, including one at Donald Trump's hotel condominium in lower Manhattan.

Some people living nearby say they're concerned. One man says he tries to avoid walking anywhere near the crane because he says "it just looks dangerous." But a woman who says she once saw a crane fall in her neighborhood maintains there's "no point in worrying" about it. She says if another construction crane does topple, she just hopes it's "far away" from her.
