This is the dimensions of the longest rafter. ~198ft long, or almost as long as 1WTC's footprint.

They moved the first thinner piece to the side and started a second one. I think the 2 thick "pieces" are actually piles of the thinner ones. they attach one of each together then add the little attachments. Still can't figure out what it's for though.

It looks like they're rebuilding the street/sidewalk. It'll be nice to get it back.

I'm sorry to say this, but I think 3WTC doesn't look so good. Sadly, it will hide 4WTC that to me is a true marvel of purity and flawless lines. I am almost sad that 3WTC will be built...
