Somebody realized it's not happening soon, so they (LMDC) put some tables & chairs in the fenced-in area that used to be memorial entry. Closes at dusk though. I guess NYPD cameras every 5 feet isn't secure enough after dark...

OK so they set up that Bay crane last evening then immediately took it away. Something wrong or did they just need it for one pick?

Technically they'll still have a view of the WTC. The fifth tower, at least.

Amyx, thanks for the pictures, but those are of the crawler they are setting up at T3.

I was referring to the Bay Cranes hydraulic truck crane they had parked yesterday at the corner of Greenwich and Fulton. In the evening they moved it a bit to the west on Fulton and set it up, then they immediately broke it down and took it away.

Parts for another one of those jigs they are using to hold the 2-piece rafters while they weld them back together.
