It looks as if the wall on the black skyscraper next to the tower won't be covered from the outline of the former Drake Hotel.

Yeah, it seems a good portion of that crane is below ground level for now. Once the jib is up it will look more impressive.

I believe it will be partially covered by a low-rise retail base at the corner of Park Avenue and 56th streets.

They assembled the crane's arm on the 56th. Soon it will be lifted

I have a question. How does the crane get eletrical power? I thought it was powered by eletrical cable from the ground, but it seams that there is a generator on the crane, so it provides the necessary power. How do the refuel it?
tnx

I think there are also some trucks coming from Madison Avenue into 56th, because the crane turns that way too.
