NEW YORK (AP) - A 13,000-pound concrete weight that was dangling 40 floors above the street from a suspended crane in Manhattan has been lowered to the ground.
The heavy cube made it to the ground around 3:30 p.m. on Monday. It took hours for construction workers to lower it inch by inch on a rainy and windy afternoon.
The load hung from the same construction site where a crane's boom collapsed and dangled dangerously during Superstorm Sandy.
The crane had been frozen with its load in midair since about 7 a.m.
Building department records show the crane is owned by New York Crane and Equipment Corp. The company did not return a request for comment.
