Gritty HLHQ Work

I've been spending a lot of time over at the High Line HQ construction site as of late.  Great little building, and the thing is going up fast!  Yesterday was a big day on site as the crew received and installed a monster plate-girder!  The girder came in on a two-day wide load truck trip from Lancaster PA.  It overnighted in Jersey and then came across the GW Bridge and down Broadway(!) after midnight accompanied by two escort vehicles, 10 police cars, and four tow trucks (you never know when you're gonna have to move some cars out of the way).  The girder is one hundred+ feet long, features 4 inch thick flanges, and starred in a brief photoshoot with Jason Sudeikis from SNL before being lifted into place.  Here are some photos I took of the girder and the job site yesterday.
