Yes, almost all cams are not updating due to bad weather in NY right now. Exception is 30 Park and Memorial cams.

EDIT: Cams are now updating like regular.

End of work-day today. Those portable offices are creating a real bottleneck! Still don't know what the weirdly shaped pieces are for; perhaps a new bracing system for the longest rafters?

Those mystery pieces look like temporary fixtures to hold the rafters in place during installation, as seen in these earlier photos.

Yeah, good luck with that. We've been waiting decades for the PATH to go all the way to Newark Airport and that's just one more stop.

God just when it starts to gain momentum they backtrack to taking pieces off and snails pace...this thing is ridiculous.

Just wait until the next time the NJ highway fund comes up short. Christie will raid PA coffers another time so he doesn't have to raise gas taxes again, and any PATH expansion plans will be dead.

I don't see how they could possibly finish installing rafters by the end of August.

Knowing how construction usually is at this site, they most likely will not meet the goal.

Some amazing shots of the One World Trade Center in the "WTC Memorial" and "Midtown" (recorded from the Top of the Rock) parts of this video:
