Note: If anyone cares, the title of "Mr. MetsScribe" will NOT be taken over by Mr. JetsScribe. Apparently, that was only temporary until someone else was found. It looks like that person has been installed and will become Mr. MetsScribe2.

Onward and downward with Fives & Flubs.................

1-7. The State St-side stairwell tower is finished and the scaffolding is torn down on Saturday.

8-10. Time for a quick walk-around:
- two views with one showing door openings for floors 3,4 and 5
- collected scaffolding waiting to get back into action in two days
- collected steel mesh waiting for the next cement floor pour
- STITCH  (with GLITCH) looking north (and the last time I get to sneak my building into the shot)


11. Day of be cleaned up on Monday


12-15.  Cleanup, dryout, scaffolding back to work


16-20. The wood arrives (and some of it is pink!). Things will really be changing quickly now.

1. That tower begins in the garage where I saw something that looked like an old fence until I saw it drive out of the site. This shows both images.

2-8. The visible part of that tower begins to take shape as lots of concrete blocks are brought in, as upward scaffolding is built.


9-15. As the tower rises, another crane is delivering steel beams to the Main St side. At one point, plane buzzes crane (maybe)............twice.


16,17. The Main St-side towers will soon start climbing higher and the State St-side stairwell tower nears completion

1. Adios, Kates

2. Officer Squillace on the job

3. (top) The big cleanout.  (bottom) "You forgot something". (I had a feeling this would happen.............that's why I took the top shot)

4. EMERGENCY! No parking on the sidewalk!

5. As bingo fades away.............

6. Bed King (front)

7. Bed King (back)

8. From a distance, I thought this guy was a 389 Main project worker.

9. At the Second Reformed Church last Sunday

10. I see a potential pairing here.

11. This is my spare. I hope I don't get a flat because it'll stick out like a sore shiny thumb against my other wheels (it's too expensive to get them all done).

12. Yeah, I kinda expected that when the bell sounded, the lights flashed and the gates came down. BTW - you may recall that I posted a similar picture last July (,3746). I just noticed that this is the exact same rail car and banner (probably). Both looked a lot better last year (so did New Jersey Transit).
