Crane Delivers Telecom Payload on Delancey
This was the scene early Saturday morning at the corner of Allen and Delancey. A skyscraping crane was busy delivering numerous payloads to the rooftop of 61 Delancey. It certainly drew the gaze of many a pedestrian.

One worksite jobber informed us that the crew was performing some maintenance on the rooftop telephone apparatus. That shelter atop 61 Delancey apparently protects the power source of the nearby network of antennas. The rectangular boxes being hoisted were fresh battery backups. A hub of telecommunication. Pretty cool stuff.
