Building New York

When I visited New York as a teenager, which I did a lot by riding the New York, New Haven, & Hartford Railroad from Milford, Connecticut, I remember someone saying to me "New York is a great city, if they ever get it finished!"  I thought of that comment when I saw this tower crane near Times Square.  I just love watching construction, and the heavy machinery required.  This makes for a more interesting picture because of the light and shadows, and the silhouette of the crane.  These are cool machines - the tower itself is inside the steel framework of the building, and as the building gets taller, they add sections on to the tower, and the crane grows with the building.

You love it and I am holding my breath afraid the crane will topple over. It is amazing what they can do with contraction, however, I would not stand and watch! :-)
