Moving from Floor to Floor During construction

Over the years, the building had several means of moving from one floor to another, including I’m sure ladders at some point. A new building needs at least two means of exit in fire protected corridors or shafts (as in stair towers).

209 will have two new stair towers (as well as a new elevator), but while they are being constructed, floor to floor movement from the lower level (aka basement) to floor 1 and 2 is facilitated by an internal scaffold. We still are moving from floor 2 to 3 by a ladder.
