A daredevil with a camera was arrested after he scaled a high-rise construction crane in the Financial District Saturday night, police said.

The shutterbug, 25-year-old Andrew Liu, started climbing to the top of the 71-story construction crane at Fulton St. near Nassau St. at around 7:30 p.m, according to cops and witnesses.

Liu, of Hell’s Kitchen, grinned as cops led him away from the unfinished building in cuffs about two hours later, videos on social media show.

He is charged with burglary, reckless endangerment and criminal trespass, police said.
