Awesome. Central Park is so beautiful with the fresh new foliage. Did you take these pictures today or yesterday? If so, then the last photo shows that the crane body has been installed.

Yesterday afternoon.

Hopefully going up the Rockefeller Center this evening, so I'll try to get a different angle.

I can't wait 'til the new crane brings progress back to pre-Sandy times. Btw, how many observation decks are in NYC? Are ESB and GE the only ones?

As I know, yes. Rockefeller center and ESB. The third one is going to be 1WTC and the fourth one in Hudson Yards.

i think those are about it, but i would recommend a boat tour of new york if your going. in my opinion, the best way to see the skyline.

Another Order to Vacate at Site Threatened by Crane

Quote:
Published: May 4, 2013

One of the more dramatic moments as Hurricane Sandy raged last October took place in Midtown Manhattan when hundreds of people were forced to leave their homes because the winds accompanying the storm had damaged the boom of a crane that loomed 1,000 feet above the sidewalk from a soaring residential tower under construction just south of Columbus Circle.

Among those forced to vacate for nearly a week were residents of the 72 apartments in Alwyn Court, the stately apartment building at the corner of Seventh Avenue and West 58th Street.

So, board members and other residents at the building were unhappy Friday when they received word from the city and the developer of the yet-to-be completed tower next door, known as One57, that they would have to leave their homes once again next weekend while the crane atop the tower was repaired. According to the city’s Buildings Department, the operation would replace the boom damaged in the hurricane.

“They are trying to lower the boom on us,” said Joseph Baillio, 69, one of the Alwyn residents who stood on Saturday morning inside the Alwyn Court’s spacious lobby. Speaking of Extell, the developer of the building, he added: “They are bullying us.”

The president of the building’s co-op board, Paul Matus, 62, said that he had met with Extell executives and Buildings Department officials on Thursday to discuss plans to install a new boom on May 10 and 11 and told them that his fellow residents would be willing to discuss how best to accommodate the operation but wanted more time to plan.

On Friday, he said, a Buildings Department official told him that the agency was planning to issue a vacate order to compel the residents of Alwyn Court to leave for about 24 hours starting next Friday night. Similar orders would also apply to another building, the Briarcliff, and to a nearby school, he said.

Saying that the Buildings Department appeared to be working as “an arm of the developer,” Mr. Matus said that he and other board members were considering asking for a court injunction to block the vacate order.

Mr. Matus said Extell officials had told him that they would reimburse the Alwyn Court’s residents up to $1,500 per apartment to relocate temporarily on Friday. But he added that it would be difficult for many residents to find lodging, particularly those who would not want to leave dogs, cats or other pets behind if there was a chance that their apartments might be damaged.

“We feel like our backs are up against the wall,” Mr. Matus said.

A spokeswoman from Extell said the company had worked with representatives from buildings where people would be required to vacate.

$150 for 15 minutes. It is good. If you've gone to the trouble of going to NY and paying top dollar for a hotel the helicopter ride does make sense. As does the boat.

Sorry for the off topic just wanted to inform people given that the question came up.

According to the NYT they are supposed to be installing a new crane next weekend.

OT- I really would like to get me a gold bar. lol.

Daily What?!: The Gold ATM on 57th Street
http://untappedcities.com/2013/05/07...n-57th-street/

Quote:
On 57th Street, between 6th and 7th Avenue, across from the Parker Meridien Hotel, is this Gold ATM. That’s right, a machine that dispenses gold. There are currently only 20 such Gold ATMs in the world, all made by TG Gold-Super-Markt corporation, an online trading platform for previous metals. The machines are the brainchild of TG Gold-Super Markt’s founder Thomas Geissler, who was inspired to repurpose the ubiquitous vending machines for a high-end purpose. The New York City Gold ATM is at Stack’s Bowers Galleries, a retailer and auctioneer of premium collectible coins, currency and precious metals.

The ATMs are covered in 24 karat gold leaf, feature a touch screen, and accept cash and credit card. The machines are “built like an armored vehicle,” says Geissler, and are theft-proof (the company tested the ATMs with explosives). Geissler wants to get 500 of the ATMs out there, not all to be located in ritzy places like Midtown West.

When we stopped by, the Gold to Go ATM was offering a 1 oz. gold bar for $1,700, 10 grams for $627 and 5 grams for $327. In addition, there were silver Bronx Zoo coins featuring a bison (1 oz at $88) and a 1 oz silver eagle at $41.00

Seen them in pictures from Dubai a few years ago. Would be pretty bad-ass to walk up and get a 1oz gold bar to go. But who wants to pay current market value for gold.
