You Get What You Pay For? Pay For What You Get? Other?

My favorite story so far of the storm:

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-10-29/nyc-fire-department-responding-to-crane-collapse-in-manhattan.html

Short form: there's a building near Central Park under construction somewhat infamous for having a marketing strategy designed to and apparently successful at attracting billionaire buyers (residential). There was a crane on top of it. It is not on top of it any more; it is dangling. There are Concerns. There will be Investigating.

I like this story because as near as I can tell, no one has gotten hurt (yet) and all the people involved can probably afford the expense.
