Window replacement on the Hancock building

Stevil watched workers replace a window on the seventh floor of the Hancock tower yesterday:

The scaffold lowers down tracks that are part of the building to one floor above the opening. Then the window which is attached to the yellow disc (blending in with the reflection) traverses to the left and they install it.

Rich Beaubien reports he's been taking nighttime photos around the Hancock tower of late:

... I know they see me on the security cameras because while setting up and shooting under the main entrance awning they actually turned on the lights for me. So it's not all bad out there.

Jen Stewart reports that when she and some coworkers were having dinner at Skipjack's tonight, they noticed Clarendon Street in front of the Hancock tower was being blocked off by police with sawhorses and police tape. Then they looked up and saw what looked like a window-washing platform about two-thirds of the way up. Could it be loose windows?

When the sun hits the Hancock just right at sunset, it changes color rather dramatically, making a trip up to Peters Hill in the Arboretum well worth the effort.

Who knew Diesel Jeans had a social conscience? Third Decade notices an ad that obviously warns us against global warming by showing (oh so chic and half-dressed) models floating around a flooded New York - one in which the Empire State Building has been joined by the Hancock Building (three copies of it, actually).

The Pru was moved to Dubai for safe keeping.
