    I work in 3 world financial facing the building site and we have been here for around 2 years now. I got to watch them add floors literally yards from where I sit and had a birds eye view of how the bones of one of these buildings are constructed.

    There have been two cranes on top of the building the whole way up and I think they were lowering some parts of one of them today. I am really curious about how the last crane is going to be removed from the top of the building.

    In addition to the two internal climbing method cranes atop the building there was also and external climber for much of the construction. Amazing stuff. Large pieces of the cranes were being lowered and trucked away today.

    Yea my buddys uncle is running the exterior crane. Pretty amazing stuff. Funny thing is that there iss a job being built on 432 park ave where the top of concrete will be higher than top of concrete on tower 1. The hi rise construction market is starting to fly again

    And sometimes the cranes come down on their own.
