    DANGLING OVER NYC - CRANE PORTRAITS

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     JodiKaplan photographed the dangling crane that hangs over New York City on November 3. The crane was damaged during the storm and remains tethering above a luxury high-rise.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    The crane above 57th Street is symbolic of a broken NYC - dangling - like the struggling infrastructure of a post-Sandy New York. These shots were taken over the past couple of evenings, depicting the precariousness of a doomed situation. Roads are cordoned off below, creating a dead zone in midtown. The painstaking job of removing this crane requires a ladder to be built up to it Rapunzel style and the crane to be dismantled piece by piece. The reverse of putting NYC back together again. Piece by piece. A balancing act. – Jodi Kaplan
