One WTC Crane Did Not Collapse; Related Turns Off Elevators

FINANCIAL DISTRICT?Not long after the crane at One57 partially collapsed, reports started circulating that One World Trade Center also had a crane collapse. But the Port Authority has nipped this rumor in the bud, sending out a press release stating that there are no problems with the tower's cranes. Additionally, many people have posted photos showing both cranes still in tact. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]
