Your posts in several thread sound like nothing happened at all, while yesterdays storm was a history making one. (subway floodings, surge records etc. etc.) Please stop underrating the events which happened, because Sandy was horrible and the true damage it made canīt be estimated yet.

Very nice unrenderish looking render. Makes those other buildings look small, much smaller than they look without those supertalls.

I completely agree with you. The WTC site and underground transportation flooded, the crane at 157 destroyed and huge flooding in other areas too. This was definitely a very bad and very damaging storm

But still, it does look like this site was spared any big damage.

Although it's pretty obvious that they won't do any work this week since pretty much everything else in the city is still shut down. And the workers could be needed with more urgent damage repairs elsewhere in area that has been hit by the storm.

You never know, I would not be shocked to see people on site tomorrow. Though I doubt we will see any substantial work this week I think unless there is damage we cannot see this site will be back moving sooner than most of the others.

Looks like it's drying out on the cam

Yeah, it should be pretty dry. THere was very little rain. Transportation for workers may be the issue delaying this. I would guess they may be back working by Thursday, which isn't bad all things considered.

Who knows, they may get 20 floors up by the time One57 fixes their little crane thingy

I can't see how contracted construction workers would be send elsewhere fixing damages made by the storm. They have certain job to do and if weather and transportation lets them I guess they will resume rather soon.

The construction company can always get work on damage reparations that will have a higher priority then this tower.

And since it's not just the transportation for the workers that could delay the construction on this site but also the whole logistics behind the construction will also be affected. Workers can't do much if they haven't got the materials that they need on time on site.

We could see some workers on site in the next few days, but I just can't see full construction until next week.

Well I only hope the storm wasn't THAT bad. I'm not sure what construction worker would have to do with flooded subway or broken trees. I think the city have certain institutions for such events. But I agree the construction may not resume with the usual full speed due to all the fuzz around.

The way this is playing out I don't think there will be construction until next week. Given the screw up at One57 the City will probably want inspections at all worksites and cranes before allowing work to resume. Remember, the DOB banned construction activities as of midnight last Saturday. Does anyone know if that ban has been lifted?

The subway is the main way that people get around NYC. Most people here don't even own cars. If people can't get to work, then work will be slowed down. Buses are running, but they can't carry everyone, and they are much slower.

My family owns three cars, and we're poor.

What would you consider a significant event...a nuclear explosion? New York and enviorons are a mess!

People, please calm down. Even though "Sandy" might have stirred up NYC, this is not the place to discuss it. We have Skybars. Thank you.

Btw: For the controversial architecture discussion, this thread was created: New York sacrificing its heritage and unique flair - an affront to its grand historical cityscape? Dumb York?

Excellent. But they seem to be checking things out rather than doing new work. Crane looks like it is in the same position.

Nevertheless a very good sign.

Wonder how the guys got in given that most construction workers tend to live in the 'burbs?

Crane is not operating might need an inspection prior to use. There are a few blokes laying rebar against the 57st wall and a few blokes having a clear up.

All cranes have to be inspected after something like this, it would be crazy simply start the crane and kill somebody eventually. You never know if some cable snapped or anything got damaged.
