This is a great sign for Atlantic City. The Revel crane - which has towered over the building and the city for how long? - is being lowered. Its work is finally done. When you consider how it once looked like this building would loom over the resort half-finished for years, bringing down this crane is a major milestone. (And it also means the crane contractor got paid.)

I was running up there last weekend and saw two well-dressed women (well-dressed women do tend to stand out in Atlantic City) gawking at Revel. They obviously had no idea what it was and were asking a construction worker all kinds of questions.

This, too, is a sign of just what the city needs. People can't help but be attracted to this beautiful, dramatic building.
