Can't believe that WTC4 beat WTC1 to top off.

Completely unacceptable. I guess the PA wants to keep dragging WTC1 out so it can keep fleecing tax and toll payors. A lot of people at the PA should be losing their jobs for this but I won't hold my breath.

THis is a joke right?

It was said everywhere that 4WTC would be topped out in June 2012 and 1WTC would be topped out in JULY 2012. So it was expected to be topped out before hand...

Just be glad that 1WTC is even GOING TO top out. Atleast its not like 2WTC that is on hold for like 20000 years...

That's because people on this forum feel the need to quote pictures, which shouldn't be allowed.
