A crane was found hanging from the side of a high-rise luxury apartment building in Manhattan today, courtesy of Hurricane Sandy. Donald Trump shared the following image on Facebook (and tweeted a link to it):
“Direct view of crane from apartment window. Crane was never properly secured, blowing in the breeze,” he said.
He also tweeted:
If authorities need direct view from top of Trump Tower, call office.
All weights are on crane’s wrong side — very precarious below, move out!
Trump offered additional tweets related to the hurricane:
So far the hurricane is being handled very well in NY, not nearly as bad as stated on news. Let’s see what happens later.
We are taking care of hundreds of people in the Trump Tower atrium–they are seeking refuge. Free coffee and food.
He also recalled a time when he went to go see Madonna live:
Many people walked out on Madonna’s concert when she told them to vote for Obama. Years ago I walked out because the concert was terrible!
Of course Trump isn’t the only celebrity tweeting about the storm:
Stay safe east coast.
Prof. Eric Michael Dyson on MSNBC thank you for explaining why privatizing Disaster relief to each state will not be balanced or fair.
I am sending out my highest thoughts to SANDY-andy ndy dy y _decrease the energy to 0
NYC subways shut down because of Frankenstorm. Rats the size of dogs FINALLY happy to have the place all to themselves!
Maybe this hurricane is punishment for them canceling “Animal Practice.”
As far as the crane situation goes, NBC News reports: “Police have shut down traffic and evacuated the upper floors of buildings in the area around the 90-story building, One57, although there were no immediate plans to remove the crane because of the danger, WNBC reported. Officials were studying the situation and trying to decide how to deal with it.”
The building is at 157 W. 57th St.
