Time to jump the cranes again!!

Unless they get new places for the cams our views are going to start to deteriorate. Already the 57th street one, which has been the best view for a couple of months, is starting to not be so good. I vote for putting them on the cranes.

That is indeed a great spot, but I doubt it will have the same overview as now. But the cam certainly can be placed higher on the Four Seasons Hotel.

I walked by on the 16th of April and asked a worker about the glass. He said about a month. Hopefully they are still on track for that!

Ready for replacement to higher floors/buildings??

But how is it possible that so many NYC construction workers look so fat. It's not like they're doing office jobs.
It isn't just NYC construction workers. Obesity is rampant in America and some other countries. Interestingly, NYC is thinner than the American average due to a more walking based lifestyle.

The good thing though, is that it doesn't seem to affect the ability to be a productive construction worker. (Beyond raising healthcare premiums for the employer)

The cams are changed again.

But the 56th cam is also turned up, I rather see that one viewing the base.

I don't like the current angle of the 56th street cam at all.

Agreed I would much rather see that cam continue as it was all week, then we can see the base plus retail work, as well when glass starts we can see that all take place.

Currently angle is pretty useless.
