A load is suspended above the street in New York, Monday, Oct. 7, 2013. Officials have closed West 57th Street between 6th and 7th avenues in Manhattan after a tower crane hoisting a load apparently got stuck about 20 floors up. A construction supervisor says the crane is the same one crane whose boom dangled dangerously nearly a year ago during Superstorm Sandy. (AP Photo/Seth Wenig)
