Water towers / water tanks are a rooftop fixture of the New York City skyline and are the subject of fascination for many.  But sometimes they need a facelift to repair the damage of the elements.  This video shows one of these Manhattan fixtures getting a tune-up. Filmed in the late fall of 2011, it’s sped up 2.5X.  I had forgotten that I even had put it together until I saw this post and video from earlier today on water tanks on the Wall Street Journal’s blog.
