Going to be interesting to see the 57th street side transition to more columns and how they go about doing it.

Great they jumped the core. Can't beleive they haven't jumped the 56th street crane yet. The freakin piece for it is laying there visible on the Park Ave cam. Really need to happen soon. How can the crane operator see the top of the core?

Yes, the crane has to jump soon. But it isn't necessary to see the top of the core, I think, because the crane lifts pieces behing the core and on the ground where he can't see a thing too. I believe they work with radios to have contact.

Remarkable. Another core jump today puts it almost out of the 57th cam's view. Thanks for the pics, Tim!

Oh, by the way, after the next jump of the main frame, NOT the core, we should see the supporting structure for the 3 extra beams on the 57th street side appear. I thought it'd be on this leevl, but I guess I was mistaken.

Man, I get a headache from this sentence.



The concrete rising in the middle is only the core, everything you see 3 stories up now will go to the top. Because the building is so low it looks quite big.

Maybe this helps.

Thnk you, really didn't know, but that doesn't look like a "toothpick", looks like a good area going up! Maybe the taller it goes the thinner it looks, cause it seems like any other bldg rite now. Thanks tim 1807, I know it was worded very awkwardly. Thanks for the highlight.

The crane operator doesn't need to see the top of the core. He'll get his guidings from the crew below anyway.
Cranes could jump when the floors reach the level of the crane operator.

Nope, no public holiday. And there is supposed to be a rain storm - but that is tonight and tomorrow. What is going on?

Maybe they are ahead of schedule and have given them a long weekend off.

Perhaps they are having a weekly safety meeting?

Never heard of Washington's Birthday actually being celebrated on Washington's Birthday :-)

But if so, this sucks. Tomorrow will likely be a washout from rain. Just when they had good momentum...

So all in all they have worked only 3 days this week. But even in these 3 days they made more progress than some projects in a year.
