Weidncol, that is some great news. Does your source have an idea as to how soon is "soon"?

The "™" symbol, I belive. For example:
When will Half Life 3 be released? Valve would than respond: Soon™.

Just like in a sense, Sheldon Cooper's trademark word or catchphrase would be BAZINGA!. Though, soon™ is more inclined as a meme in the urban dictionary.

To the roof, 1WTC's communications rings and spire (obviously) are higher.

umhhhh, no.

Frasier is the protagonist of the 1990's sitcom "Frasier" (played by Kelsey Grammer) and Niles is his brother in that sitcom, their lastname is "Crane", Frasier and Niles Crane. Hence the joke, when weidncool estated "Crane is coming down very soon" Granmercy asked "Frasier" and Celt67 said "Niles"

Ichabod is the protagonist of the famous Washington Irving story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" (the one about the Headless Horseman) The last name of Ichabod is also "Crane" The two people on the pictures are Jhonny Depp and Tom Mison both playing that character, the first on a 1999 movie directed by Tim Burton and the second on a current TV series "Sleepy Hollow" The action of the story takes place during the 18th Century on the Village of Tarrytown, now a New York suburb on Westchester. The story was so important, that the village of North Tarrytown changed it's name to Sleepy Hollow in 1997.


Now, some pictures of the buildings to end the OT

This is Frasier and his brother Niles CRANE from the brilliant comedy show 'Frasier'.

Since the building first came into view from my apartment in July 2013, I've been working on a stop-motion video using photos I've been taking every few days or weeks...it's been a while since I posted an update (mainly because there hasn't been all that much visible change since it topped off), but here's the latest version, updated through this morning:



My original plan had been to keep working on this until 432 was clearly "finished" (crane down, signs of life in the windows, etc.), but just by pure chance now there is another building (252 East 57th) starting to climb directly into the frame of this video, so I think I will keep updating this as both projects unfold...

Anyway, enjoy...

Set in quasi-New York, you mean. The setting is heavily inspired by the Big Apple, but it's not meant to be a recreation of the city, by any means.

But inserting those skyscrapers should certainly be a possibility. It's just a question of modding.
