NEW YORK

New York City’s mayor says the dangling boom of a midtown Manhattan crane damaged in the storm is tethered to the luxury high-rise building.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Saturday that officials hoped to open 57th Street on Saturday night.

The crane boom collapsed during superstorm Sandy last week, likely because of heavy winds.

Engineers climbed the 74-story building in the midst of the storm to inspect the crane.

Some neighboring buildings were evacuated, including a hotel with 900 guests.
