Can't say I'm surprised at this point. They are milking it for every cent the union can get. Not holding my breath for that September opening either, I bet it won't open until sometime in 2016. Joke.

I remember you saying that before Otie. I hope that's the case at least, this thing is dragging terribly.

My documents have been saying for the past few months "final completion > 9/2015". Don't know why Otie's information is different.

you all need to chill out.

nothing has bee built that is quite like this, please keep that in mind.

yes, they work the steel quite a bit by heating and pressing to get the warps out. One of the rafters actually appears short, but i doubt that is the case.

Saying that they are milking it is a ridiculous statement. The contractors are all on lump sum contracts. They will get the job done as quickly as they can, i assure you.

No one here has seen the critical path schedule, so please try to relax. (except maybe Otie)

Thank you as always for being a voice of reason, Jacko.

The union-bashing in the NY forums never ceases to amaze me.

Its ignorance.

Granted there are some union work rules that are ridiculous and obnoxious, but most of these are hardworking blue collar people who just want to work their asses off and get paid for it.

Regarding the schedule, who knows what has actually occurred over the life of the project? How many change orders have added time? How many redesigns have added time? How many times has the architect or engineer been late approving drawings? Or the PANYNJ been late making decisions? Or politicians getting involved?

Its a massive crazy project and we need to relax and enjoy it.

Inside the Occulus... Now that a bunch of scaffolding and east crane have been removed, there is a long blue topped ramp? that appears to slope up through the inside from west to east. Any ideas what that is?

It's been there for a while, but was not easily noticed because of scaffolding and other stuff in the way.

Union bashing is cleverly organized by big corporations to make sure that unions will one day disappear. The economic problems of America originate from the psychopathic greed of the fat cats that run those corporations.
