Crane Hanging In There..For Now!

It's become one of the scariest images from the aftermath of Sandy on the East Coast: The damaged and dangling crane hanging from a Manhattan building under construction. And the damaged construction crane perched high atop a luxury high rise in lower Manhattan continues to cause concern. Timothy Galarnyk, an expert in infrastructure risk analysis and prevention says precautions should have been taken before Hurricane Sandy to protect the building and the people in the neighborhood. Mayor Bloomberg said the crane had been inspected on Friday. Several buildings remain evacuated due to the concern the crane could collapse at any moment.
