I'll bet the rain caused them to abort the attachment.

Safety first.

It was put in there when it was dry the day or two before. But yeah the speed is defiantly at snail place. Most of them they spending taking it off and putting it back on all over again because something probably didn't match up.

Screenshots for both my postings 2603 and 2604 I've made about 1 minute prior I posted each of them
And between 2603 and 2604 it was really pretty rainy in lower Manhattan

I was only kidding, of course safety first. I'm just a little taken back how slow this is going now, I'm pretty much assuming they are very far behind schedule now more then they already were.

I actually don't think they are that far behind of schedule, remember the official completion date is mid 2015, that's a good 2 years from now. We're not talking about a huge structure here and the biggest challenge was actually the below grade structure and that part seems to be in its final phases based on the latest pics so even at this pace and as complicated as it is to build, it's reasonable to think it'll be completed 2 years from now.

i wouldnt expect much more than this pace.

They are erecting a sculpture that happens to be a roof. Nearly everything is welded together.

It is all architecturally exposed steel and tolerances are very tight.

Just wait until the winter......its going to get painfully slow.

There is other work that must be started on an considerable amount of time previous to the opening, last major schedule recalled erection of the entire Transit Hall Oculus steel by the end of this year, with welding completed at 50-75%.

Painfully slow.

otie, are the cantilevered rafters single pieces? or will sections have to be preassembled on site?

doing a little math here, there appear to be roughly 90 subportals that have not had any portal sections added on top of them.

taking just those 90 locations, and adding 90 portals, 90 transition sections, and 90 rafters, that gives us 270 pieces (assuming rafters come in one piece). Say there are another 30 pieces to fill out the areas that have already been started. Call it 300 total

Assuming they are average 5 pieces per week (taking into consideration the winter coming up and the likely slower production for pieces higher in the air, that leaves us with 60 erection weeks remaining...

It will be a long haul.
