2. Tryna get a better look at that cute little fork lift down the block?

3. Mischievous kids couldn't find any cows to tip?

3. Go home lift, you're drunk.

I mean it's behind The Model so that seems to be the most likely answer.

Lift/ crane/ whatever was so old- it was built back before the Model renovated and put in windows

There is a blue collapsed crane behind the collapsed boom lift.

No, that's actually just the heavy wrecker there for the recovery job.

I've seen many get crumbled in and outside of the Model. #MakeAllstonDangerousAgain

I saw this lift in use around 9:30 this this morning. It looked like it was fully extended to about 10 stories and there was a worker in the pod on top - several feet away from the back wall of the building. It looked so very tenuous that I shuddered and walked away. I was relieved to hear on tonight's news that the worker was OK.
