You have to upload them in an image-host site. There are many of them.
I use Imageshack. You have to register (it is easy) and then you upload the pictures you want there.
The uploaded images will be shown in thumbnails, then you press a button with an "i" at the right side of each image and some of links will appear. Copy paste the link for "forums" in the message (in SSC) and mark preview post to make sure that the image is correctly uploaded.

I think that the orange is just scaffolds, not floors.

It's amazing just how narrow NYC streets look from that shot. I'd imagine with the level of density there that traffic is practically jammed 24/7. Nice to see some progress.

Wow this rising quickly.

One only wonders if private developers had developed the WTC site instead of the Port Authority.

They would have finished years ago.

looks like it. chances are that they probably could care less about the construction except to complain about the noise, dust, and all the equipment at the site I would pay decent money to rent that place for a year or so and do nothing but sit out there all the time and watch

The Franklin National Bank Building. Yeah, they can add a huge led-light show on it.

the image from that article (as posted above also)

Are the squares, which i have circled, the sections for the windows?
If so, you can see what sort of scale they are when compared to the red lorry which i have pointed out on the left!

I believe that is the size of the windows all the way up yes. They did look big on the renders, and this is a residential building after all and they are paying for the view. Surely the Glass must be tripled glazed at that size tho, or them upper apartments are going to be really cold!

That picture is at a great angle to, i love it! Its a pity we haven't got a skyscraper fan in one of the surrounding buildings to give us great quality pictures for this project. Although the webcams are great they don't always seem to give the right perception.

I am not sure if any one has scaled these but in looking at over dims it appears that the opening will be approximately 11' square and yes this grid is consistent over the entire structure

I have updated my diagram of this building. Right now it has 3 floors (considering the lobby has double height) and is 19 meters or 62 feet tall

Roof height used below:

These windows are huge. One could stand inside them easily.

Window?

I would think those things you are calling windows are actually the street level entrance ways.

Yes they are, but the windows, all the way to the top floor, will have the exact same size as those entrance ways.
