Part of a crane boom is seen hanging off a building under construction on West 57th Street on October 29, 2012 in Manhattan, New York City.

A broken construction crane dangling from a building prompted authorities to clear the streets surrounding One57, a luxury high-rise on West 57th Street in New York City. Officials say the winds that high off the ground may have reached 95 mph. The building is still under construction, and its penthouse is reportedly under contract for $90 million. The New York Fire Department is on the scene, and authorities are clearing a large radius around the tower anticipating a fall.
