Very nice! I went to the Memorial in April, 2012, and recognized the time from one of the frames. The trees were just getting their leaves.

As for your Transportation Hub Timelapse, how did you get those images? Have you just been saving them ever since?

Otie, since you are the resident expert on this project, perhaps you can answer this seemingly simple question:

If I take the 1 train from Columbia University to the Cortlandt Street / World Trade Center IRT station a few years from now, will I be able to exit the southbound platform directly into the shopping mall (while remaining indoors)? If so, can I enter the mall from either the northern or southern ends of the platform? I'm guessing that a pedestrian underpass will be necessary, similar to the one connecting the northbound and southbound platforms of the BMT (R) Cortlandt Street station.

What do you think this is, a church? It's a shopping mall, and we shouldn't have to walk on eggshells to discuss it.

Wow! The "marching hammers" have turned out looking absolutely amazing. When I was scrolling and saw just the first 1/3rd of this picture, I thought it was a rendering.

That seriously looks like a ribcage. It's almost uncanny.

I would feel uncomfortable walking under that, especially given the event that occured here.

Yep, it looks like the first rafter! (picture from earlier this morning)



There are another two new pieces on site, most probably the finishes of the skyline over the entrances...

would this only allow for access from Brookfield Place to the Temporary PATH station, or would there be extremely limited retail?

4WTC looks so good in that last photo. Too bad that angle will be covered up by 3WTC (although then we will have 3WTC to admire!)

Yes, it will permanently connect Brookfield area to the PATH temporary station. Opening depends on finishing agreements between the PA and Brookfield relating operation and maintenance.

They seem to be accelerating as I had predicted ... still not blazing fast but they're learning the routine ...

Very impressive.. Are those gray ribs are steel structures of reinforced concrete? It looks concrete but its difficult to construct from engineering point.

Is December 2015 still a go for its opening or has that been pushed back?
