Hopefully if we're lucky this Tower will top out by August lol jk. It shouldn't take much longer. July will be the month it will top out because they just need 105, and the parapet, which is just a wall of perimeter steel. Almost there.

if you check out the skyline view from liberty state park on earthcam, you can see that one of the cranes has made a HUGE jump... action again soon I think.

you may have also seen by now that the other crane has also jumped, so both cranes now appear poised for the next round of steel erection.

two positive signs ! :-D
