That's sad. I am just glad that people weren't hurt. I have been up in it many times with friends and family. It is a great experience. I am sure it will be fixed at some point, but it will cost a pretty penny.

Seems to me, since this 'obelisk' is made of three different stone materials (marble, granite, and bluestone gneiss) it apparently can be rebuilt probably from where the crack begins and ends and then putting the aluminum cap back in place. It'll be costly and time consuming!

There was probably a weak point at the time of construction which resulted in the crack when the earthquake hit. There are faults running up and down the east coast and almost no buildings built to withstand an earthquake. How smart was that?
