a crane, 8 stories high, has fallen and is dangling from the roof of a building directly across from rare violins of new york (mike and tatzu run the rare violins restoration shop.) we're really hoping it doesn't come loose in the 70 mph winds and come crashing through the windows.
crane can be seen on huffpo, with photos, and on daily beast.
am update- we were lucky. though our lights flickered and dimmed at times, we still have power and are safe. many others not as fortunate. new york and new jersey are reeling.
