describe the imageEver been on the job, up high on the steel beams? Lunch time comes and you’ve got to go all the way down, grab a bite to eat and then all the way back up. 

Well in New York City, DCM Erectors building One  World Trade Center has the answer. As told in a New York Times recently published  article,  “For Ironworkers Up High, a Movable Feast,” a Subway restaurant franchise is housed in cargo containers and raised by cranes as the building goes up. The restaurant stays on the same level as the workers. They get food and an air conditioned space to eat it in up where they  are working.

If you’ve been on this job, let us know how the Philly Cheesesteak is.

We’d also love to hear how you may have gone beyond the lunch pail and been creative for your meals.
