Cranes are an urban way of life. A few years back I watched one place a big AC unit on a roof on the UpperEastSide.
Cranes service the everchanging billboards along the Third Avenue Bridge, too.
Remember when that crane came down on east 91st in May of 2008?
You can see a dozen NYTimes photos here:
I took the photo above from my apartment that morning.
Two workmen died in that accident, so a manslaughter trial is underway.
Now, questions of training and professionalism are being asked.
So what’s this doing in the sound?
