Jeff Arsenault January 27, 2012 @ 4:33 am Empire Quarry is just right across the highway from me on Patton Hill. So cool that the Empire State Bldg. bought that quarry, so that they can mine pieces for any future add on’s to the bldg. Thanks for sharing this video, and putting us on the map.

Tom Tee June 18, 2015 @ 1:13 am I used to work in steel construction. Its not that bad really. It just looks scarey. Its not the heights or the climbing which is the concern but its if you get some people who show no respect when they work above others is where the real danger lies. All that’s needed is one nut or a small tool to be dropped and that can be as serious as being hit by a train. But in good weather, being up on the steel is the best place to be.
