Two beams being lifted by a crane at a construction site across from the Javits Center fell Tuesday morning, closing the West Side Highway for several blocks.

No injuries were reported after the incident just before 10 a.m., which the FDNY said left the beams “leaning precariously” over 12th Avenue off 34th Street, the FDNY said.
