Since I'm not from the NYC area I don't know anything about this source of information. Is DNAinfo a trusted source of information or do they sensationalize on a regular basis? If this is a true problem it could be very significant and develop into a huge problem very rapidly! Hopefully that's not the case but....

No it's not, it's fully retracted. Look again but real closely, it's there.

Sorry, I don't seem to see them...

You're right. It's like a turtle. Can't wait for the trim to be finished so we can say exterior construction is complete. Except for the beak. Please tell me the beak in the horrible bjarke WTC2 renderings is a mistake. No beak right?

Its a trusted source , the NYPost (Fox New group) and Daily News sensationalize....and the Gothamist is a news aggregator with some stories similar to Daily News and DNAinfo...

Finally got a chance to visit the site tonight for the first time since construction of the oculus began. I knew it was big but I wasn't anticipating it to be that big. The way the structure just soars skyward is truly sight to see and one that pictures don't do justice.

Has anyone else noticed that all the printed banners attached to the chain link fence along Church and Vesey streets have been edited to remove the "Opening December 2015" from the Westfield ads?

Is the basic structure finished? I thought the 'ribs' were supposed to be symmetrically related on either side of the spine?

Yes, the entire thing is almost complete externally. The south side rafters have to be shorter because of how much closer it is to 3 WTC.

Stupid of me to never realize how close the 1 line is to the hub. You can actually see into the oculus when going through the tunnels.

Jaw dropped when I saw it.
