If you're talking about 35 HY, the "excavation" is the ongoing drilling of the caissons down into the bedrock. For this tower the caissons are being drilled between the LIRR tracks in the NW corner of the East Rail Yard. The NY NY FB photo below MIGHT show the caisson drill nearest the 11th Ave viaduct drilling one of those caissons.

Looking WSW, column assembly on the south side of 33rd street. The 11th Ave. viaduct ~bisects the photo horizontally. 35 HY will go around where the furthest yellow drill and the train at the covered platform are on photo right. You can see that they temporarily shut down a strip of 3? tracks for the caisson drills, white hydraulic crane and associated equipment. I'm also assuming they will demolish the brown roofed train platform to drill caissons for 35 HY columns and then rebuild platform for train maintenance operations.

Meet the New Heart of New York - Joanie!

The men and women building Hudson Yards work hard to keep construction of this city within a city humming along. But from time to time, even these intrepid individuals need help with the heavy lifting. That's where Joanie comes in. Since arriving on site in May, Joanie's put in her share of hours hauling thousands of pounds of steel foundation reinforcements and platform superstructure components. Sounds like a lot, but standing at 220 feet high, with a 600 horsepower engine and a max lifting capacity of 660 tons, this red Manitowoc 18000 crane can handle just about anything her operators throw at her. The strongest crane in New York City, Joanie's already hoisted her way into the hearts of all onsite. And after her mention in the September 4th Fortune article, she is quickly becoming one of the most recognizable and popular Hudson Yards team members! #NHNY
And the diagram below is a reminder of where Related hoped HY would be at the end of 2014 (3.5 months left)
