Hmmmm... I thought the Sphere was going to be in the center of the big circle just west of the church. That's where it used to be in the renders.

There were renders?! Where can I see them?

Aside from that, I also thought the Sphere would stand in that circle in front of the church. But actually I'm not sure if that would be such a smart move, since it would stand very close to the entrance then.

On another thought, I don't know if that (possible) new spot is so much better either. To be honest, I can't imagine the Sphere anywhere on the site. Actually I like it in Battery Park. The museum would be a nice home too, I think.

Lately I'm not sure if Liberty Park will be too crowded with all these "not so much related to each other" stuff.

Thanks. Already subbed. Not a fan of the new block design. Much preferred the design on the front page of that thread. That design also complimented Liberty Park on the opposite side well I thought.

It looks like they poured a lot of "concrete" or something like that on the large green space on the left. A lot of grey now visible via earth cam.

Maybe one of the New York locals could snap a pic or two to give us outsiders a better look?! That would be really great.

I think it's really great to see so much progress at the moment on the WTC site. 3WTC is getting much more cladding and here in Liberty Park there is something "big" going on besides the church.

The concrete they are pouring is where the Sphere will go. Originally it was planned to go in the "plaza" in front of the church.

Does anybody know why they haven't demolished the temporary loading dock for WTC1 since the VSC is in operation?

Because they haven't built the permanent loading docks yet. Access to those will be through the area where the PATH entrance was.

The VSC is in operation only for towers 3 and 4 right now.

The first piece will be moved to the site tonight. It's coming in 5 pieces and will become visible for the public in time for the 16th anniversary, although possibly before then.

I'm wondering if that is the reason the earthcam feed for Liberty Park is down since yesterday?! Does that mean the Sphere is already completely dismantled from Battery Park?

The Sphere's in place in Liberty Park, under a tarp (check out St. Nicholas National Shrine webcam). Can't find anything online as to the unveiling. I'd image there would be a ceremony. Glad it's back home.

Itīs actually very weird to see the sphre now encompanied by the new WTC, but it also gives you back the old WTC vibe. I have mixed feelings about itīs return right now. I have heard rumors theyīre going to fix it, which I understand as returning it into itīs pre 911 condition.

To me, its damaged state makes it a historic artifact of 9/11. I hope they don't fix it, just make sure it doesn't fall apart

Was there today, it's still wrapped up. I'm guessing they will unveil it in a ceremony on 9/11.
