NEW YORK- A construction crane that dangled precariously when Superstorm Sandy blew it over posed another problem over the streets of New York.

A section of West 57th Street is closed while authorities fix a new issue.

The problem on Monday came during a tornado watch and high wind warning.

Five blocks of West 57th in midtown Manhattan were closed as the boom on the crane pointed downward with its load dangling near Carnegie Hall.

The load had to be lowered manually, which took hours. Closing the street caused major gridlock.
