Whenever I go to my weekly class at Green Lake Yogalife, I have to encounter a huge construction project in progress at Northeast 72nd and Fifth Northeast. Part of it is going to be a new PCC store, scheduled to open next year. I don’t know what all the rest is going to be – maybe more condos and "mixed use" buildings.
The traffic impediment is a nuisance, but I have to admit I’m always fascinated by that orange crane that swings so smoothly and relatively quietly across the sky. I found a good place to stand where I could see most of the crane, and as soon as I roughed in its lines, I heard a humming sound, and its long arm swung over my head – amazingly fast.
