Wow! How did they remove it? (I wasn't able to come here for a while and I'm surprise to see a part of the crane is already removed)

We know they rotated the crane so that the boom was next to the building. It looks like they then built a platform underneath it and erected scaffolding up from that. I'm guessing they cut the boom into small pieces and hauled them down the construction elevator/hoist and sent them on to a metal recycling center.

So now we're supposedly waiting for the derrick that's up on top of 4WTC to be relocated here to remove the heavy stuff. Perhaps the derrick can finish the remaining work that the crane had left to perform. But only if the derrick will be long enough and strong enough. Otherwise it will install a replacement crane.

Work stop must be irritating with that crane out of commission.

Correct, that boom was probably cut into pieces, there is still a small part left.

The only work that I can see that still needs to be finished are the lower metal crowns.

It would go soon anyway because the building is almost finished.
The boom cannot be re-used, the other parts are probably still ok.

Cladding aproaching the crown now. It'll only be a matter of weeks before it reaches the top!

Here's What's Still for Sale at One57 (With Floorplans)
Tuesday, January 15, 2013, by Sara Polsky

Quote:
The highest-profile units at One57, like the more-than-$90 million penthouse, have already sold. But there's still a wide range of units available, according to the current availability sheet passed along by a tipster who now has our eternal gratitude. The cheapest place still available: a 2BR, 2.BA with southern and western exposures asking $8,900,000. At the other end of the spectrum is a full-floor unit, #81, a 4BR, 5.5BA pad seeking $54,000,000. As for whether these six listed units are all that's left in the building or more will be released in a later phase of sales, we're not sure. Anyone?

Floorplans for One57's apartments are normally only available to those who visit the building's swanky sales office, where said floorplans are projected on a giant screen in a mock living room. Just a taste of what life at the building will be like! But our tipster nabbed a few floorplans in a daring feat of floorplan-nabbing.

Here's one for a 3BR, half-floor apartment:

And here's one for that full-floor apartment on the 81st floor:

54 millions, an ammount of money which I can't even imagine

A helicopter has struck a crane in London this morning killing two people and leaving the crane looking remarkably similar to this one.
