Almost all of West 57th Street is back open now that the boom of a dangling crane in Midtown has been secured.
The New York City Department of Buildings says all streets in the immediate area, except for two lanes on the north side of West 57th between Sixth and Seventh Avenues, is back open to pedestrians and vehicles.
They say residents who were evacuated can return to their buildings, but utilities in some of those buildings may have to be restored.
High winds last Monday caused the boom to flip over backwards, dangling 75 stories up.
