Good thing 30 cops showed up for that one guy climbing a crane. I don't know how they could have done it without all that manpower.

He started climbing at 7:30PM, still too light out and was arrested 2 hours later.
Yeah cops were pissed.





Just when I thought I was out... they pulled me back in.

If you're going to climb in NYC at 7:30 p.m., you kind of deserve what you get at that point.

I've never climbed something like that until after midnight (but down before 4:00!). I don't think ever. Unlike NYC, I'm even in a city that sleeps.
One lesson I'm glad I didn't have to learn the hard way.




I wandered till the stars went dim.

It's interesting that he was charged with burglary, being as the article only mentions him having a camera, he was probably just going to take pictures. Burglary by definition requires an intent (before or after entry) to commit a crime of some sort, separately from the breaking & entering.
On top of that, fenced off areas (eg construction sites) generally aren't considered facilities that house people, so they generally don't count as trespassing.

Bad luck for him... well, bad judgement, 7:30 is way too early.
