West 57th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues was closed this morning after a tower crane hoisting a load got stuck. A large, yellow box dangled 20 stories above the street.
It wass the same crane (below) that paralysed the area for several days during Hurricane Sandy last November. The second breakdown came during a tornado watch and a high-wind forecast.
Video report here. By mid-afternoon, the crane was made safe and the street reopened.
