Installing An Elevator In A Skyscraper [Pic]

Submitted by: fancylad 4 years ago in Misc

Actually, that"s just not any skyscraper, that"s the new World Trade Center in NYC. Must be an easier way to install it.

pumba, I see perspective every day of my life, for me this is not about perspective it`s about a bloomin great lump of mechanical escalator flying through the sky on the end of a rope.

that picture is all about perspective ...the picture is taken from the crane that is lifting the escalator and it is nowhere near the building behind it , making it seem too large to fit in the building.

@Gerry, did exactly same, even too a moment to wonder if photo was distorted to make it look curved at ends.

Of course there is an easier way, just bring the escalator up by the stairs. You need only two men, one on each end.

Sweet! They`re putting a Wonkavator into the new WTC. It goes upways, downways, sideways, and backways. Just hold on as we go up and out

Those are the counter weights that help the elevator move - all elevators use them.

That`s the new slide they are adding for when the elevators stop. You can still zip out quickly.

I kept looking at it and thinking, "How does an elevator make the curve?" then I leaned in really close, turned my head like a confused dog, and BINGO I saw the solution!

It`s an escalator.

The "elevator" is a lot smaller than it looks, it just looks big because it`s closer to the camera. It`s all about perspective.
