Just at the northern part of -- of Times Square.
So if you're in the middle of Times Square and you look up towards Central Park.
This is almost to Central Park three or 4 blocks south of Central Park.

Terror prison he was there when it happened -- thank you of course this is one of the things about which they have great concern because the winds are going to get much stronger in New York City before they get weaker.

They're big construction cranes that in the lower in the Manhattan of course of the World Trade Center site there are other could construction cranes I know of one.
At fourteenth street and and third and Fifth Avenue.
Bunch of towering cranes all over the city they're built to withstand wind but how much wind are we going to get clearly today it was too much for this one.
