Flagpole down, up high

01Feb13
About 170 feet above Chestnut & 7th, a brain trust of engineers and crane workers examines the damage and plots strategy for taking down the fallen flagpole atop the Public Ledger Building. As darkness fell, a welder worked near the base of the pole, flying sparks suggesting that he was further securing the pole for a night of half-recline. A crane awaits below on the still-closed 600 block of Chestnut. Friday will be another good day for motorists to avoid the intersections near 7th/Chestnut and 8th/Chestnut.

Damage to the ventilation system left at least some in the building without heat.
