For Brookfest, if you are up for taking questions!

On the south side the cribbing takes a bend, a slight jog about halfway along Chestnut St. Any special reason for that?

GREAT, amazing photos, even #5 with the guy taking a leak!. Thanks and here's hoping for good digging and more photos.

Any chance for a hard hat tour before all the rebar and "real" construction starts? The City's biggest sand box.

I hope that the above ground work turns out to be just as exciting as the below ground work has turned out to be, but for completely different reasons!

In a Blatstein port-a-potty, you have to go onto the roof to use the john.

Geez. All kidding aside, you'd better make sure that the roof drains are not plugged with this design!

Posted a couple of pictures to my little used Instagram account (same user name). If anyone knows how to rip them and post here be my guest. Although you guys have explained it a million times I still don't know/don't have the time to work out how to post photographs.

Finding the static image links on instagram is kind of a pain.

find your account: https://www.instagram.com/39.95n/

Click the photo you want: https://www.instagram.com/p/BFHWfmORnQE/

Then right click on the page and hit view page source, find the image link will be something like this: https://scontent-iad3-1.cdninstagram...MjE0OA%3D%3D.2 ,Copy the link, hit the image button on here and paste it is

Tower crane going up!

Here are some pictures of the crane / boom going up over the past 2 days. Also the counter weights sitting on the street.

Im surprised it doesnt have the jacking section attached from the start. I guess they can add one of those sections later on, although I'm not sure how. Unless this means there will be another crane later in the project. Perhaps this crane will only work until the structure reaches a certain level.
