Do they start putting the 'wings' on? (Forgive me for not knowing the technical name).

Can't wait to start seeing those appearing, towering into the air!

According to a source, the 'wings' should start becoming visible sometime this year.

Installation of the temporary protective frames will help control the extreme temperatures while work continues at the Transportation Hub.

The next steps are the skylight, windows and the rafters. (the "wings" are called rafters).

reviewing the video again, i reckon she said "This is" approximately 10-12 times.
but its a rather clever marketing psychology. now everytime you hear "This is...", Westfield World Trade Center will pop up in your head.

I see what you did there, Westfield. Well played.

Back to the development, i think its pretty cool.

Yes, definitely. By then there will be some progress on the rafters/wings and skylight window.

New to Forum With a Surprise

Hi, I have been following this thread for a while and finally decided to sign up with a surprise with you guys. I know that you guys have been feeling a little left out since the camera on earthcam.com that shows towers 2 & 3 and the transit hub was taken offline. Well turns out, the camera is still available and is still online! If you have an android (idk about iphones) go download an app created by earthcam called ControlCenter, hit login (no need for password), go to demo cameras, and click on Ground Zero GigapixelCam. There are plenty of good live shots of the World Trade Center from the roof of the hotel across the street. PROBLEM SOLVED! YOUR WELCOME!!

A cam that only shows 3WTC & the Transit Hub

Even a cam that shows the construction of 30 Park Place

On the demo account on the iphone app it's only showing the memorial cam, am I missing something or have I missed the party?
