This poor soul expresses outrage at Lights on a Crane...
They leave this crain (sic) light on every night. It literally lights up my entire apartment. The picture isn't the best quality, but you have to understand that it is 4 huge spot lights on a construction crain (sic) 4 blocks away. It is almost 1am and tree is no reason that all those lights need to be on. By 7 am thy are turned off. The 4 other buildings being built in the neighbourhood do not have their crain (sic) lights on.
Dear Mr. Crain Dude,
Please turn off your crain light every night. It shines into the window of my tenement. I spent all my money on iPhones, iPods, and iSelfRighteousness. I can't afford window treatments. Your Friend, Anonymous
