Hoisting in Fun City

We went to fun city today and while walking along 53rd street to an appointment, we saw this sign.  "Hoisting..."  Hmmmmm...  I wonder...  So I looked up to see if I could see any hoisting.

Wow!  It was dizzying to see the height of this building, and there at the top was a yellow crane with a pulley on it.

When I zoomed in on the crane I saw that the pulley was huge, and it creeped me out because of how large it was and how high up it was.  I imagined the damage just the pulley it could do, falling from that height.  I took a few photographs quickly and we got out of there!

Scary! I remember a crane toppling in NY a year or so ago. Very dangerous situation.
