Probably unsafe to do so, but I availed myself of a closer look and found that the far side (the one facing the expensive crane, a work crew, and a very, very busy street), had been braced like this:

On a somewhat related note – I ran into a friend of mine, a recovering American attorney, who literally rubbed his hands together and cackled when I showed him these photos (still on the camera).
