Erica Tishman Has Been Killed Due to a Building With previous Violations.

A 104-year-old building located at 729 Seventh Avenue has killed architect Erica Tishman, 60, as she walked on the sidewalk. A falling chunk of masonry fell on her head, killing her instantly.

This building in October 2018 was given citations for ‘a failure to maintain exterior building facade and appurtenances’ and  ‘damaged terra cotta at areas above the 15th floor in several locations which posed a falling hazard for pedestrians’. They owners, 729 Acquisition LLC and Himmel + Meringoff, own 12 commercial buildings in Manhattan, ignored the warnings even though this is a class 1 violation, which required that the infraction must be corrected immediately.

This April, the property owners paid a $1250 fine.

Now builders were rushing to put up scaffolding before any more people are killed. 

Erica Tishman was married to Steven Howard Tishman in 1982, ‘financial analyst with the Zayre Corporation.

The couple has three children Adam, Stuart, and Julia.
