This morning, EV Grieve asked, “Why is 41 Cooper Square dented?”

Here’s the answer: Claire McCarthy, Director of Public Affairs at Cooper Union, told The Local the dent in the new academic building’s armor was caused by Hurricane Sandy.

The damage occurred when the conical top of a wooden water tower attached to a nearby residential building on the eastern side of 41 Cooper broke loose and hit the building.

“There were no injuries, and our crew got rid of the debris,” said Ms. McCarthy.
