This screen shot from a report released on the website of New York state's economic development agency, Empire State Development, shows seven towering heavy-lift cranes to help illustrate the state's growth, but the Associated Press has discovered the picture is really an 8-year-old photo of construction cranes in South Africa. An un-cropped version of the same photo is available for licensing on the Getty Images website with a caption saying the cranes were being used to build a stadium in Cape Town for the 2010 soccer World Cup. Empire State Development said Tuesday Feb. 20, 2018 that the photo is “a generic stock image” and will replaced with an image of ongoing economic development in the state.
