The incident was reported at a high-rise under construction in Midtown, Manhattan.
No injuries were reported, but the New York City Fire Department said they responded to reports of debris falling from a building.
The building is an 84-story condo tower on what is referred to as "Billionaires Row." Apartments in the building go for more than $30 million.
Inspectors from the Department of Buildings were sent to investigate, causing the closure of several streets.
