No Angel at the Galvanizer!

Had it all set up at the Galvanizer for this morning. Talked to a guy named Angel, said no problem, be there by 7am in Jersey City. Got there at A few minutes before 7, no Angel and nobody knew what the F, I was talking about.
Turns out the company had their Xmas party last night, the whole crew was apparently hung over, but all in all they came around and did a nice job. Got some great access, and shot some video like a tourist. Ignore my stupid comments, and the guys probably making fun of me in Spanish.

Can't believe no sighting in Manhattan today, shiny new frames right down 34th?

Uploading the video now, takes forever

They were all pretty Hung over and it seemed like the guys who were supposed to be in charge didn't even make it in.

They were great, it just took a bit to get sorted after Angel was a no-show. In and out of there in 3hrs.

My last comment was just about my all access pass. They really were awesome all around.
