Reminds me of the crane incident at One57.

Look for the union to jump all over this one.

No injuries were initially reported, but witnesses said some glass fell from the building.

“I saw it swing out in the wind, and then it crashed against the side of the building,” said witness Myron Reddy, 56, a construction worker. “I thought it had to cause structural damage.”

A construction worker who didn’t give his name said he was assigned to secure the scaffold.

“It came loose in the wind on the 48th floor,” said the man, who wore a yellow-and-white vest. “I’ve got to go up and tie it down. It should be all right.”

Anybody notice the waves in the facade as the light casts on it? Best facade to rise in the city in the last 20 years.

I have a feeling 45 Broad will be another one.

I am already feeling nostalgic that this one is almost complete. I remember drooling over the renders, and the real thing is even better

I've seen no antennas anywhere this big, or at least big enough to live in. It's a very slender tower for sure though. And there's still more to go.
