Does this mean they are always working on a 24/7 basis?

Less and less space for rafters. Couple more rafters to be installed and only space on the ground would be on most West and East position(instead NW and SE) which can contain just two rafters each. That will significantly slow down process of assembly of rafters.
What will be logistics of final steps of assembly?

At the current rate of progress, the north rafters should all be up within 4 weeks!

Lifting #33 South

Edit: There are 114 total rafter right? 57 each side. I counted 19 North rafters left to be placed, which would mean 38 North rafters have been placed versus the 35 that was counted last on the thread.. Im confused.

They paved more of Greenwhich up to the new curb section they have been working on in the NE section of the memorial plaza. I wonder why...

That's the South side lol...that brings us to 72 total rafters installed...42 to go! Looks like #39 North is going to go in today as well.

Edit: #39 North is in.

A large cherry picker/basket crane would suffice.

On the second last picture it appears as though a few of the rafters are out of line, I wonder if they will fix them all at the end?

I don't believe they are actually out of line. It's just an optical illusion because of the shape of the structure.
