If you have gone anywhere near the ferry lately, you have no doubt noticed that the giant cranes have finally been put in place to help erect the NY Wheel.

The cranes come in two sizes: one that can life 600 tons and the other being able to lift over 1,350 tons. In fact, the smaller of the two cranes is mainly going to be used to help build the bigger crane! 

The New York Wheel began construction in May of 2015 and is expected to see its grand opening sometime in early 2018.
