The Last Lift

Tomorrow the Delaney House is moving again. I know I said there would be five moves, but when the Delaney House was moved to the back of the lot on 62nd, it was not lifted up in the air - it has stayed at the same height it was at the front of the lot (minus the rotting basement walls).

But tomorrow, the house will be lifted an additional 6 feet in the air, leaving about 12 feet of clearance under the house. Then the foundation goes in, the walls go up, and the house will be lowered down onto the new walls.

If you're in the environs of 62nd Street, stop by and take a look. It's a pretty amazing process.
