There is no such ban, clearance is the only issue that restrict the use of these cranes (at least in Manhattan, they have been used in Brooklyn and in the Queens)

The PA has full jurisdiction over the WTC site so technically they are not legally bound to follow the directives from NYC DOB (such as a ban on a certain crane). However they do as it would be a huge PR nightmare if they ignored a directive from NYC DOB (such as a ban on a certain crane/equipment) and there would later be a problem with that crane/equipment.

Otie, are they still fixing the spacing screwup at the end of the longest rafters?

I don't think I'd ever really noticed the interplay between the Hub's rafters and the white vertical striping on 2 WTC. Lovely little detail. Can't wait until it's under construction.
