As I approached the stoplight, I had to look twice . . . is it possible that

a repurposing of the super bull crane has been implemented?  I know it’s sometimes breezy out this time of year, so might this be a sturdier way of supporting traffic signals?

I made the next available turn to check it out . .  that is indeed a large structure to dangle a traffic signal from.

 

Shooting over the fence, I confirmed that it is the one-and-only and twice-named Left Coast Lifter, twice named so in fact.

All photos by Will Van Dorp, who will be following this not-so-easily-hid crane.  I’ll have to start looking for it from other perspectives.

Adding to its previous unofficial renaming, how about Traffic Light Heavy Lifter, Richmond Terrace Lifter,  New York Wheel Alternative . . .?  Got a better name?

Below is a late-add photo of the crane as seen from Bay Ridge Flats today . . . evidence of how large that crane is set along the north side of Staten Island.
