The first photo shows a previously-unseen side window that was blocked by the rightnextdoor Hanson Real Estate structure that was demolished two days before the window itself was smashed to bits yesterday. It's quite interesting-looking. Too bad this was the only way to preserve it. It's also shown/mentioned/heard in the video of the demolition.

Most of the rest of the images are shown sequentially and can also be seen and heard in the video. Crank it up if you love the sound of breaking glass. NOT in the video are the third-from-the-end closeup of the front steps and handicap ramp that little kids loved to run up and down on and the last image two-photo stitch (scroll horizontally). The next-to-last shot shows what had been the identification canvas that stretched across the front of the building.

All images are ęBob Leafe.

Because of photo file size per post limitations, I had to make a separate post.

This crane sat right in the middle of E.Salem St because there was nowhere else to put it.

While I was on Moore St, I noticed some workers at the top of 210 Main - the old bank building (last picture). It's the first time I've seen any workers there.

It was slow driving on Main St in the Salem-Camden area on Thursday (and no driving on E. Salem or Moore St in the same area). I was there to photograph the two giant cranes that were dancing about the construction sites.

Part 1 concerns the HUGE crane that could be seen from all over town and seemed to tower over Manhattan in the view from my apartment, appearing to be ready to pick up the Empire State Building in the first picture.

In the next four pictures, it's preening in front of the well-lit city just after sunset.

The next morning, it's kind of middle-fingering the ESB. That's when I headed over to the Current on River construction site (can't they get a better name?) to shoot this colossus. It's quite impressive fully extended.

The last picture was taken Friday morning when it was in its sleeping position. It hasn't budged since.

Part 2's (next post) crane was two blocks away and caused some of the traffic problems.

This is THE video still of this morning's event. I have about 3 dozen small videos to edit down to one and a few hundred machine-gunned photos to wade through plus a couple of other things I shot this week, so it may be a while before I get to post it all.

Finished: See separate posts for demolition photos (,3662) and demolition video (,3663).
