    Where is Joey? I don't know he was here a second ago. Did you guys go out last night ?

  3. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    I have that as a picture

  4. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    Back then these men worked extremely hard and finished fast with terrible tech…but now a days it takes 5 years to dig up a road<— and that’s not a joke

    Time Magazine is financed by the globalists. It is a lousy good-for-nothing anti-American rag now. People please boycott this NWO propaganda Outlet.

  6. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    Holy shit

  7. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    The greatness of the European man

  8. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    Those guys were fearless they should be remembered

  9. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    I've been up real high.

  10. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    Thanks for sharing this picture and the story behind.

  11. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    And i thought my chair in the kitchen table was to high

  12. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    That was Awesome!

  13. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    Stuff like this reminds me of how brave people were back then. Then u look at the childish, rude children of my generation who isn't even brave enough to walk home when it's dark out. Imagine when we get older and there is NO robots to fight wars for us. Who will do it? Not them. #thisgenerationisdoomed

  14. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    Just amazing 👌 I couldn’t do that….

  15. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    Blowing Wind has entered the chat

  16. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    It was a publicity photo. No one was eating on that metal frame that high rockafeller

  17. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    I would poop purple twinkies if l had to work up there … Oh no l rather stand in soup line and smoke my boots …

  18. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    The guy on the end is holding an empty bottle of liquor

  19. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    I think we got heroes every where

  20. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    It’s one thing to have lunch on the beam. But another to take a freakin nap! These men inspired comic book superheroes! God be with them all!

  21. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    Ps4 camera

  22. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    Wtf!

  23. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    A. Hasn't been seen around the world
    B. It's been proven ro be a fake
    This lady is an idiot

  24. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    0:06 I skipped the video 😱

  25. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    Black lives matter

  26. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    It can be my last meal..OMG!BEST CONSTRUCTION WORKER AND BEST PHOTOGRAPHER..I SALUTE YOU GUYS…

  27. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    THATS WAYYYY BETTER THAN SELFIE!!!!

  28. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    WELCOME TO AMERICA 4:10

  29. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    Amazing people.

  30. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    Honestly, guys like this need to be saved from themselves. They might have all the confidence in the world, but all it takes is 1 Wrong step or 1 cross Breeze that's a little bit too strong. There is not a dead man's line attached to any harness to keep these guys from tumbling to their deaths. I would be curious to know how long each of them lived after this picture was taken. I really see nothing here to celebrate.

  31. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    Rockefeller faked the photo to make the family look good. To give the image of them reviving the hard working American spirit in young men. Truth be told…they’ve been the financiers and profiteers of every American war which cost millions of American lives.

  32. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    Badass

  33. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    The man in the middle likes turtles

  34. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    No women in any of these pictures… I guess feminists will not like this doze of reality.

  35. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    The men that built New York are tougher than any gangster or gang member

  36. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    The phone almost slipped outta my hands as they got so sweaty so quick from the heights they were on!!!

  37. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    I don't get Americans, they are so proud of their country even tho it was never theirs, the took it from the Native Americans and killed them all

  38. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    And then decades LATER…

    KABOOOOOOM buildings GONE ✈️🏢

  39. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    Oh that's just me and the boys chillin and playing PUBG Mobile, while on our lunch break.

  40. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    MAGA kind of guys✌️

  41. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    After g4rtste23 the mind was like why Christianity? Because all its prophecies should be 100% correct – the true god does this. Eternal life is free, gained by faith in Jesus when you die. Can't earn it by payments, good works, following all laws but we still try.

  42. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    It's fake…

  43. January 11, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    This photograph is a great metaphor for teamwork and togetherness
