Wow, thanks a lot for those pics. Especially the fourth, I always wanted to see the progress down under Greenwich street (and the subway line). Always nice to see those supercolumns, hadn't seen them in quite a while.

Your welcome, I was also curiously waiting for pics from below the surface. Btw, all pics are available also in a much higher resolution on flickr..

Please tell me that the blue-handled pallet-jack is not the only think holding that column piece up at an angle?

That white paint makes it look beautiful. Also off-topic, can the memorial pools hold a full load of water?

Hopefully we will found out today or tomorrow. Hopefully we will get some pictures of flooding down there. All cams went out when power was cut around district. Expect more delays because of this....

Um... at least the lights still work... lets hope the museum was protected by the big concrete wall. I'd like to see the space under Greenwich Street. Also, I'm pretty sure that the bottom level of the oculus is above the water level, I think there are two stories of parking garage beneath it. Because its designed for 18 wheelers and buses I'd assume maybe 16' slab to slab so the water probably wouldn't be visible on the EarthCam even if it was functional.

I am glad you enjoyed the pics (and thanks for proper attribution). I have about 150 more from that day which will eventually join these on Flickr.

Sorry for veering a little off topic, but I went through Calatrava's Dallas bridge today and took a few pictures:
