Guys, I never said the site is dead. By "not anymore", I was saying that there wasn't work occurring on site anymore at the time of my post. So sometime between 2:45 and 3:30, the work on site stopped yesterday.

Anyhow, looks like a bunch of windows have been placed on the 56th Street side.

I swear, this happens to me all the time. I can't count how many times my posts have been misinterpreted. Hopefully this does the trick:

This building is not on hold!

Not on hold? But if it's not on hold and there's no work crews then it must be dead! OMG the project is dead!

things are actually very busy on site this morning...big truck load of windows and most interesting it looked like four very large sections of crane tower...
but not tower sections...not sure what they are...about the same dimensions as the larger tower sections but they are painted red and have pivot point and pins on top corners...they look more like boom sections to me, you can barely see one corner of one at the very bottom of the 56 St camera. Some kind new and big equipment is going to be assembled very soon.

another load of windows coming off truck right now

Maybe they are for the new crane? Many pages ago it was confirmed eventually there would be a crane on top of the building. Maybe thats why progress has seemed slower over the past week because they are preparing for that switch?

that very well could be the case that they are preparing to mount a new crane on top...certainly the parts are of that scale
I wish I had taken some pictures...I thought they would be more visible on the cam

Unfortunately the new position of the 56th street cam is not very good. They moved it up a few weeks ago for some reason so is almost pointless now.

But people here are very sensitive to phrases "on hold", "dead" and etc. So one should use discretion in using them.

Dear god its like they read my mind...the 56th street cam has been re positioned back down so we can clearly see these red sections jconyc was referring too. Certainly looks like pieces for a different crane

I'm not sure the level of reading comprehension in this forum is high enough for jokes and sarcasm.

Also, I'm going to be in NYC the first full week of December (9-16), anyone want to take a guess at how tall this baby will be by then? I'll be sure to snap as many shitty cameraphone pictures as I can.

I'll stop, but if people truly are that sensitive to message board fodder than woe unto them. Doesn't take much searching across legit news outlets to determine the status of the project.

Which, for sake of clarification, is still a go! 432 Park will be completed, y'all.
