I was at the WTC last Tuesday. It was raining all day, but managed to take some pictures before entering the 9/11 Museum. The most pictures I took at the site were from this masterpiece.






The most awesome shot of them all

Why they don't paint central E and W pieces? Those sections are still primed in grey while all the rest has already several layers of white paint.
UDP: Sorry the E part looks already white. So just W part looks unpaint.

This thing apparantly has leaking problems, so they are adding flashing along the edges of all of the windows.

No, the leaking is coming from underground somewhere, possibly from somewhere in the slurry wall... The above ground structure is fine. I'm almost 100% sure the flashing won't be visible when completed.

Well, they confirmed it wasn't the slurry wall, and indicated 3ETC, which is still exposed to the elements, may be allowing water into the structure.

I think if the slurry wall were leaking, they'd have to evacuate the site...
