Manhattan, New York - Police and fire emergency crews were called to the Manhattan One57 luxury apartments after a crane on the side of the skyscraper partially collapsed. Part of the crane remained dangle facing 57 Street. Authorities did not say, how much damage was caused or if anyone was injured after parts of the crane fell into the street below.
Police blocked the area and blocked off traffic as hurricane Sandy continues to blast winds up to 60 miles an hour. Tenants from the building and adjacent buildings were told by the New York Office of Emergency Management to move to the lower floors as emergency crews will try to secure or remove the damaged parts of the crane once the winds die down. 
Hurricane Sandy began to hit New York with high wind gusts and rain earlier than expected, according to authorities.
