That sounds about right. A lot of the smaller 20-floor residential buildings in NYC are built without the use of a tower crane. Because its cheaper and a lot of those floor plates are extremely small + the only thing they really need to lift is rebar/wood which is easily accomplished with the use of a street crane or a spider crane (Google it, they're cool). They only really need a crane one day out of the week.

20 cranes in NY? Whatever they are smoking, I want some.

There's way more. I know, because I was just in the city today. More than 20 in Manhattan alone. Problem is, I doubt these authors take the time to walk the streets. There's a lot of smaller projects not known, in the 300-400 ft range that have cranes. In Midtown alone, they tend to not be noticed as 300-400 ft nada and you'll see them tucked in via the cross town streets, where the surrounding towers are 500-650 ft. The Bronx is also a hotspot as well. Again, lesser known projects unless you follow them or know about them.

If we are talking 20 cranes, over all 300 sq miles of the city, that list is full of crap.

If I recall I think that list goes off of permits filed so far in the year (+ the cranes in the air at the start of the year? Not 100% tho). Because in July Chicago didn't have 40 tower cranes in the air (only 21 or 22). 20 still seems low for NYC though.

the fact that the SSP database lists 91 buildings >300' currently U/C in NYC (and that is likely a big under-count), the notion that there are only 20 tower cranes currently in the skies of NYC is ludicrously low.

whatever methodology that "study" is using, the results don't come anywhere even remotely close to passing the sniff test.

Yep, no way that is possible
