In reaction to being shuttered for more than a week surrounding the events of Hurricane Sandy, executive Chef  Emile Castillo at Norma's at Le Parker Meridien Hotel built a 5-foot-tall replica of the highly publicized fallen crane that caused the evacuation of their building.  The crane dangled off of One57, a neighboring high-priced residential project still in development.
