Not sure if every night, delivering of these massive pieces requires a lot of coordination meetings and stuff with the city of New York. One thing is for sure, the best stuff of this project always occurs during late nights!

Yeah what's up with those cams? Seams like they can't get their shit together at all. Would be nice to have a live cam running 24/7 like the street view sweeping cam they have.

From the looks of it one of the lower portals were installed today, there are now only 3 out of the 4 that were there this morning!

I wish I had the link to the Oculus cam. Earth Cam keeps switching it to the Overhead View cam.

Otie, when are those big vertical spires in this render supposed to start going up? I really, really, want to be able to see something above ground when I go down there.

BTW, Q1 for 2015 may well be accurate but it seems absurd that it will take so long. Ughhhh.
