So, McDonald's: The Fast Food Restaurant that's basically terrible for the universe. They had a location in downtown Brooklyn that you could reach by simply going over the Manhattan Bridge and taking a left (or if you're driving, you have to make a U-Turn at the Myrtle light, because you can't turn left at that intersection, which is stupid, but whatever). The point is that it was once a very prominently placed McDonald's, and now, it's gone, dead, done with. Hopefully something better will take its place. Now, here is video of that destruction, with commentary from the crane who destroyed it. Angry Crane?
