I noticed this marvel of engineering on the way back from lunch today. It’s right on our own block at 63 West 38th Street (aka 62 West 39th Street), where a 12-story office building is getting a 6-story addition and being converted to a hotel. I’m sure these fine folks know exactly what they are doing, but personally I would think twice before spending any time on that scaffolding – the support beams look just a bit â€śsillâ€ť-y to me . . .
