Once this is completed, it'd be interesting if the "wings" had dynamic lighting at night. Could be a very striking sight.

Can anyone explain where the two small rafters will go? (At the bottom of the last picture) The rafters only 'grow' longer while they put more in?

I think those two are for the south side, they are shorter than the ones in the north side

Just a thought, folks... are there really that many rafters that will have to be cut in half for transport? And if there aren't very many, will the reassembly delay the project by all that much?

There seem to be some REALLY long rafters already on site... maybe the separation of a few won't delay the project much at all.

I think those are pieces of longer ones they were cut in half for transport. If you look at the pictures all of the short ones have already been installed. In addition it looks like the wide end of those two short ones you are seeing were cut.

They can't be cut pieces, because of the way they flare out at the end. Maybe they're the "beak" over the entrance?

It might have something to do with the subway (Cortlandt St. 1). That's right about where the tunnel runs through.
