Under Construction

Those can't be window washers on the building on the far right. There are no windows on their level. My guess is they're installing windows. The building appears to be under construction based on all the materials out in front and the clean stone edifice. The support beams protruding from the windows are most likely anchored to the unfinished interior.

Still there, looking good

No window washing going on

Looks more likely that the building is under construction or perhaps renovation.

Window Washer Beams

Probably secured with "lotsa" sandbags and a long lever arm.

Inside Straight

What do you suppose is anchoring the inside end of those beams from which the window washers' scaffold is hanging?
