i’m 40 minutes north of NYC in Westchester county, have watched this develop on TV and all i can say is pray hard...they said debris is falling from the building and they can’t do a thing about the crane until the storm passes....its effing creepy watching it on TV and reminds me of that terrible day 11 years ago in September- not in scope but in anxiety...
why didn’t they secure this crane or bring it down over the weekend??? gotta love those unions....

Any concerns in your area about the Indian Point nuclear plant? I understand it’s on the banks of the Hudson River and it appears to be in a bad location right now.
let me guess, they refused to work on a weekend?
Having worked construction in NYC I can tell you it would have taken less than a day (overtime at that) to secure the boom of that crane. Not bring down the whole rig, just the boom could have been detached from the base and bought into the building or down to the street.
tc God luvs America. My daughter also lives in Westchester County, I am keeping fingers crossed for their safety. They have a lot of trees on their property.
