The collapsed crane at One57 was secured about a week after it collapsed in Hurricane Sandy's high winds, but it hasn't yet been removed. That removal, a tipster tells us, is scheduled to begin the week of December 3. A new crane needed to be built to get the broken one down, and so far things are happening according to the anticipated timeline. Evacuated neighbors' legal action against developer Extell, Lend Lease Construction, and Pinnacle Industries is also underway.
