The Derrick has been there for a while now. That's how they removed the busted crane.

What are they working on now?

The stripes and waterfall effect. Very reminiscent of Deco signs and marquees for one example.

Yeah, other then what I said, I have no idea why other work has stalled. I'm just wondering if they are going to install a new tower crane. It seems like they haven't removed any of the crane sections and I would think they would want all that gone if they aren't installing a new one. I've heard many times that they can complete the job with the Derrick but one question I have is wouldn't they need the Derrick on the ground to completely remove the tower crane base and sections?
Also, perhaps there was some kind of stop work order given when the crane broke, but honestly I can't see it being this long. After all, at the end of the month, it will have been 6 months since Sandy came through I so want to see this thing completed.
Does anybody have a Drone we can send in

One57 is such a tease. The cladding gets almost to the top, then stops just a couple floors short for months and months? Irritating. I can hardly wait till we see the crown, I'm sure it'll look just wonderful.

On the DOB website it says that there is a partial stop order on this site, so maybe this is the reason we don't really see anything really going on with that.
