NEW YORK -- Authorities in New York City have closed a busy Midtown Manhattan street due to a malfunctioning construction crane on the same building where a crane dangled after Hurricane Sandy last year.
The crane at 157 West 57th Street was raising about 13,000 pounds of concrete Monday when it got stuck, a law enforcement official tells NBC sister station WNBC.

The street is closed between Sixth and Seventh avenues, and the immediate area has been evacuated.
A crane hung from the luxury residential building after it gave way amid Sandy's high winds last year. The block was shut down for a week.
