Just a little bit

2012-06-28 15:57:36.763263+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

At Brooklyn's 36th St subway station, one of the stairs is fractionally higher than the rest. Dean Peterson set up a camera to watch the action. Via MeFi.

One of the things that struck me as I delved into building code for the workshop was how exacting code for stairs is. This is why.

And if you read nothing else today, go read this response in the MeFi thread by JimmyJames.

Maybe the subway people need to talk to these guys. I have also heard of a consortium of NY slip and fall lawyers who have teams that patrol the city looking for cracks in the sidewalk. Under some legal decisions the city isn't responsible if you trip and fall if they didn't know about the crack, so the private inspectors regularly report cracks to the city, in the hope that someone will injure themselves before repairs are made.
