Big Rigs Invade Soho – Prince Street, NYC

February 22nd, 2012 by Stu

Have you ever run into one of those massive crane rigs that routinely hoist ginormous building materials 30 or 40 stories into the air in dense urban areas? It’s quite a spectacle and construction workers often stop pedestrian traffic while the crane is operating to avoid falling objects from landing on top of the heads of unsuspecting tourists. Ever wonder how massive cranes like this get transported to the cobblestone-laden, utterly narrow streets of SoHo of all places? You’re looking at how. Good old fashioned muscle from names like Mack and International.

It doesn’t get a lot tougher than this. I get memories of Stallone in Over the Top just looking at these things.
