Tyrannosaurus Crane

As Westport’s downtown is being transformed by the construction of Bedford Square, its skyline has suddenly been filled with what one alert “06880” reader calls “Tyrannosaurus Crane.”

Crane over downtown - Bedford Square

The reader wonders: Why have other buildings in Westport — taller than this one’s 39 feet — been constructed without a massive crane?

The reader sent along a news story. Yesterday a huge construction crane crashed into Mecca’s Grand Mosque, killing at least 107 people.

The reader hopes there is “a hell of a bond” in place on Church Lane.
