ACCIDENT PRONE CRANE FINALLY COMING DOWN
W. 57th Street in Midtown Manhattan is blocked off as this crane is dismantled. The same crane whose boom nearly fell to the street below during Hurricane Sandy. And which, months later, dropped a load causing even more concerns in the neighborhood. One woman I interviewed for 1010 WINS, Angela, was walking her dog under the crane during the first mishap. And was just down the street during the second. When I asked her if she's happy it's finally coming down, she emphatically replied, "Good bye!"
